0 CRD#56 a Yamaha 125cc by CRD


At Fuel we use to build motorcycles with an offroad look as an scramblers or dirt track types but this time starting from a BMW R65 monolever 86' we have builded our first cafe racer project. The new Fuel R65 Racer...A bike with a tank and racing tail, clip-on handlebars, alloy wheels, dual exhaust, footrests racing, etc .. Jorge, the owner, is a young guy who lives and work in Barcelona who gave us complete freedom for building the bike fully trusting on us. Since the beginning we had a very clear idea, to create a bike with a racing aspect but that could ride each day as a gentleman in a suit and tie.

 We think that thanks to their elegant shapes and and a sober colors we have achieved this goal. The gray color of the deposit is the same color used in the Mustang Eleanor (“60 seconds” film) this color with natural light produces a shadow effect giving the bike a sleek and aggressive look at the same time. Starting at the front we got a creative note with a small quarter fairing made with a helmet visor (Biltwell bubble shield) that hides a small and powerful frontlight.

On the top we put only the original BMW tachometer to mark the racing look of the bike and just below the counter a start button. The fuel tank comes from a Laverda 750 SFC and we builded the seat along the lines of deposit to form a harmonious set. The seat upholstery is leather designed like the old racing bikes. Some new collectors to come out the two escapes from the left side gives a racing look.. but not just the look also the noise! Hehe ... The tires we decided to go with a Heidenau K65 that gives a modern performances with a classic look.

The bike was in good condition so we haven't overhauled the engine (just added a competition air filters.)..regarding the suspension, we changed the rear shock for a better Hagon one and mounted a progressive fork springs. For us it has been a very interesting experience because it has been a different project to what we had done so far ... hope you like it!

0 BMW R100 TRACKER HP of 1979 by Fuel

0 Fuel R100 Strasse, a BMW R100 RS from 1979

Based on a BMW R100 RS from 1979 the Fuel R100 Strasse (“Street” in german) was commissioned by Pablo, an enthusiast of classic motorcycles, restless traveler and fan of Apple products.

He dreamed with a motorcycle where aesthetics have more relevance than performances  a bike to get around the streets of Barcelona and even for some of the dirt tracks that you can find  around. A bike to look at and be seen.

The basic idea in terms of design was to get a motorcycle with simple and clean lines where each part of the bike was very defined by color or materials so for example, the tank and fenders are a block, the engine was totally painted for getting another visual block. the chassis and subframe in sand color it’s another one ...

The tank was a very important part for the look of the bike so  we made a lot of tests using diferents technics to get an aged metal aspect finally achieved using bitumen of Judea plus a clear coat for protection.

A powerful and small lithium battery was hidden in the air filter box to get a cleaner design ... on the right side of the box a little battery disconnector was adapted and installed.

The headlight is from a classic motorcycle trial, a powerful Motogadget speedometer was installed and the ignition was relocated on the side.
The rear taillight was installed inside the seat for a cleaner look.

On one side of the bike a small metal case build in Poland gives a military look at the bike.
In a word, a motorcycle to get lost with style through the dark streets of Berlin city itself.
