Assessing the modification results on the BMW R100 R, Vagabund seems to work perfectly. Even the look of this bike from far was so special. Each strokes was clear, mutually enhanced in each corner.

Its fuel tank with two tone needs to be underlined, perfectly accentuate the space beneath. On the machine, each fin that appears silvery, from the header to the block, showing the level of craftsmanship that usually displayed by the veteran industrialist.

The headlights and the rear section were the other things that stand out. A smooth exhaust, and mirrors placed on the fork seem eccentric. It's look like Vagabund has found its style. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | VAGABUND | HIGHSNOBIETY]
