Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles’ latest creation, based on a 1984 BMW R80 ST, is inspired by the likes of Triumph, BSA and Pentons of the Sixties, motorcycles that used to ride the International Six Days Trials.
The front fork, sourced from a BMW K75 Sport, has been adapted by designing and machining the front axle and the triple trees. The brake section has also been improved with a 320mm oversize disc, a 4-piston caliper Brembo and Nissin master cylinder. The entire front disc and displacer caliper has been designed by Fuel and built by a specialist. The rear features a Wilbers shock with multiple adjustments.
The front recieves a headlight from a classic spanish trial bike, along with a Motogadget speedometer, Tomaselli handlebar, indicators switches from an old Triumph, classic enduro grips and a car type starter motor relocated to the side of the bike. On one side of the Kawasaki is a gearshift from an old Ural (suicide shift). Five months of hard work and we think it definitely shows!
