It took only a couple of years for Diamond Atelier to make a giant mark for them in the highly contested world of custom motorcycle building. The German duo of Tom Konecny and Pablo Steigleder, however, haven’t stopped taking our breath away since that first epic R80 that featured on the cover of Moto Heroes magazine, an achievement of huge proportions for a first attempt at a build by and company. Now, already in their build number six, Diamond Atelier are showing no signs of design idea fatigues and they just keep getting better and better with every new build, such as this absolutely stunning Diamond Atelier BMW R100 Cafe Racer you see in these pictures.
Based out of an iconic BMW R100R, this Diamond Atelier BMW R100 Cafe Racer is the duo’s return to the iconic BMW based out of an urge to work again with the classic 2-valve Boxer. The duo wanted to put an emphasis on balanced proportions and for it, they used wide 17-inch rims mounted on bronze metal flake hubs, while the Diamond Atelier BMW R100 Cafe Racer has a tailpiece that seems to be designed in a way that it looks as if it is levitating. For this build, a custom tailpiece was fabricated that is a bolt on type and can be mounted straight on the bikes stock mounting points, given the build a super clean look.
The fuel tank and the rear subframe are higher than usual to keep the classic café racer lines flowing on this Diamond Atelier BMW R100 Cafe Racer. To furher accentuate the clean look, turn indicators, and the light has been moved to the number plate holder at the rear. The rear also contains the custom seat and the tail section which is made out of a 0.8mm aluminium sheet. Continuing with the German company’s tradition of exquisite detailing, this Diamond Atelier BMW R100 Cafe Racer has a 0.17 carat diamond set into the CNC-machined triple clamp, this triple clamp also houses a Motogadget speedometer. Among other custom bits on this build are the likes of a custom fuel filler lid, a titanium exhaust system, among others. The most interesting bit on this Diamond Atelier BMW R100 Cafe Racer has to be the absence of any starter button, in place of which there is a trick way to start the bike, just like a wizard, you would have to press the brake lever in a particular sequence to start a bike, we say that it is incredibly cool. The speedometer reading arrives from the gearbox leaving no wiring on the tyre, all for the sake of that super clean look.
With the level of work that has been done on this Diamond Atelier BMW R100 Cafe Racer, it was obvious that the next phase for Diamond Atelier was to go into production of OEM-quality parts that should be good enough for being homologated and it will be done with the help of 3D scanners, CAD, and CNC Mills.
