Check Out This Incredible Custom BMW R60 Worth
Worth Motorcycle Company is unique in that they design bikes along with at-risk New York city students to help teach them the art of engineering. Students spend 48-52 weeks in the course working with icons of the vintage motorcycle world to give them an appreciation for the vision and skill it takes to work on bikes like this BMW. This particular bike, a BMW R60, was built earlier this year. The project was overseen by Jeremy Malman who is the Founder and Executive Director of the company. His goal was to give the BMW R60 a cafe racer makeover with a focus on performance. RELATED: Custom Ducati Cafe Racer: Art on Two Wheels
The rebuilt bike has Race Tech springs and a triple tree lowered by 3.5 inches down the fork tubes. This improves steering responsiveness. Rear springs are now Works Performance Suspension with 304 stainless and bronze preload adjusters. There is a new harness with a Shorai lithium-ion battery, Enduralast 400W charging system, Dynatek ignition coil, and Champion spark plugs.
According to Silodrome, the handbuilt fiberglass seat and tail were made in-house and an original BMW R100 fuel tank was added. The seat upholstery is a donated Alpinestars leather jacket. Worth has not only designed an incredible bike, they've given kids an opportunity at a better future.
