BMW R100 from 1978 By Iñaki Bellver

7 Feb 2020
by Iñaki Bellver

History of the bike: 

The bike is originally from Iñaki’s uncle. Iñaki’s uncle is from the south of Spain he bought the Bike brand new more than 40 years back. A little over forty years later Iñaki’s uncle wants to hand over the bike to his sons to give the motorcycle a new life. He asked Iñaki knowing it would be in good hands to modify the bike.

About the Builder.

My name is Iñaki Bellver. I’m a 27 years old mechanical engineer from Valencia (Spain) and, occasionally, custom motorcycle builder.

Ønix Design is the name of my workshop.

What did i do and why do i do it: 

The aim of the modification was to make two different generations love it (my uncle and my cousins). Therefore, I maintained the classic and elegant look that old R-lines have, but at the same time I simplified The Bike as much as possible.

Double seat and handlebar (not clip-ons) were a must for them, So my uncle could ride comfortably. And obviously, I restored all the aged parts of the bike, because it had some rust and damages from the years.

Myself and my workshop: 

I have been around bikes and car since I was 14 years old, when I had my first bike. And at the age of 18, I bought my first classic, an English Honda CB750F that is in continuously modification.

I work as product engineer at Ford Motor company, so the workshop is not a full-time job for me. Nevertheless, I manage to make 2 bikes per year.

Always trying to make something a little bit different as the rest of builders, and I design + manufacture all I can (Btw, I sell those parts to anyone interested)
