This sleek ride is Diamond Atelier’s custom build of a BMW R80 RT 1992. Revamping a personal motorbike so that it would be easier to control in downtown traffic, the German workshop knew they wanted a lighter machine. But, they didn’t want to do a café racer like everyone else; they wanted their creation to look good and distinct. So, Diamond Atelier based their build on many different types of motorcycles, ranging from racing bikes to streetfighters. They finished the design with just two colors: black and shimmering pale blue. The sophisticated look comes to a point in the 0.17-karat diamond inlaid into the upper fork clamp, defying all expectations for motorcycle style.
