OTL is beginning the task of building a svelte, powerful, compelling cafe bike from an unloved, beat up and unwanted
donor R100RT. Go ahead, state your ire at people who'd ruin a great machine. Truth is, there are a plethora of these bikes out there. This one was purchased for $3K. The R100 platform will be the palette from which a custom designed and built authentic airhead cafe racer is crafted. Your input is welcome, pro and con. OTL can take any jabs, and redress them within the context at hand.
We have input from Master BMW Builder Chris Hodgson, German tech/artist/OTL correspondent Harald Sauer, and many others. We'll keep it in your face in OTL magazine until it's completed.
The donor bike graces the May OTL cover, and the mastermind and wallet behind this project is OTL Art Director, Bill Costello, famous within BMW circles world wide for his touching video on the restoration of his Dad Richard's R50.
