2001 BMW R1200C Independent: The third in our series of “black & white” custom cruisers


The “Tomorrow Never Dies” BMW done the 2WheelsMiklos way. The result is a bike which is a lot leaner, a bit more aggressive and nowhere near as “bling”.

The major aspects of the makeover are:
•    Satin black painted wheels shod with slightly oversize white-walled Maxxis tyres.
•    Bespoke front fender to accommodate the oversize tyre.
•    Satin black fork lowers, rocker covers and front engine cover.
•    Black Renthal Fatbar with black low risers, Oberon bar-end mirrors and indicators, Tom-Tom GPS and grey Renthal grips.
•    A 7.7 inch Metal Projects headlight with black grille & a pair of Bates style 4.5 inch yellow lensed LED fog-lamps – all on a bespoke mounting.
•    An in-house fabricated 2-into-1 polished stainless steel exhaust system with a GP style tailpipe.
•    Rear fender comprising the mounting for the original fender. This has been polished and incorporates the Radiantz LED strip tail & brake lights and rear indicators.
•    A mini-rack has been fitted and also an Iron & Resin RHS canvas saddle-bag; the support bracket of which also holds the semi-circular number plate.
•    In-house fabricated seat base with tuck and roll upholstering by P&D.
•    Then finished off in a 1960s era BMW “Chamonix White” paint job with black pin-striping and a spider web motif – done by Cycle Sprays.
Really nice ride and what a head turner!
