If you go right down to the woods right now, you’re positive of an enormous shock. Namely, Ralf from Bavaria’s Woidwerk bikes (actually, ‘Forest Factory’) tearing shit up on his newest creation, a BMW R80 roadster he calls ‘Mad Fritz’. Well, you’d be mad too should you seemed this good and needed to spend all of your time hidden in a forest.

“I grew up with motorcycles and wrenching ,” says Ralf from contained in the forest. “Even right now, my grandfather continues to be a motorcyclist on the age of 86 and he has all the time welcomed me in his storage. After an training as a grasp mechanic, many private automobile initiatives and loads of skilled expertise in constructing racing prototypes, my small customized bike storage Woidwerk was based in 2015. My workshop is situated within the deepest Bavarian Forest – within the Bavarian dialect we name this ‘Woid’ – close to a small city known as Viechtach. After many paying jobs, I’ve now accomplished my first private challenge, a motorcycle known as ‘Mad Fritz’.

Ralf calls the bike ‘a modern and futuristic style, with a little bit of cafe racer in it.’ however he additionally notes that he’s unsure if it matches into any specific class, which needs to be factor. “It’s a BMW R80 Monolever from 1990. I bought the bike about 100 kilometres away from home off an old man who bought it new in 1990. It had exactly 18,000 kilometres on the clock when I got it – and I’m pretty sure they were all original.”

And simply after we thought we’d heard all of it so far as customized bike inspirations go, Ralf proved that certainly we haven’t. At all. “My main decision for the overall style was the BMW R1200R LC handlebars. As good as the normal round handlebars are, I find them a little boring.” So the remainder of the bike’s aesthetic selections adopted this ‘modern aluminium style’.

“The project took almost a year; mainly because I built it alongside my customer’s bikes. It has developed slowly over 2018, but the direction was clear: modern, slightly futuristic and aggressive – yet elegant – like a real Bavarian gentlebike.” He ought to most likely trademark that phrase, I feel.

“Modern, slightly futuristic and aggressive – yet elegant – like a real Bavarian gentlebike.”
“It started with the handlebars on the shortened, upturned forks, a new headlight and a bespoke fork brace, which I specially designed for this vehicle. Next, I worked my way through the bike’s core, with some detailed electrical adjustments, an air filter conversion and some aluminium pegs.”

Next, Ralf took a breather to plan an aluminium tail part, however within the offing the plans modified and as an alternative he constructed the brief – and moderately stunning – carbon rear finish you see right here. Herringbone has by no means seemed so scorching. “Of course, it then needed a cool exhaust system. We accomplished this with asymmetrical Hattech silencers, which are very cool, and some special routing just below the rear and under the frame.”
