INTO THE WILD: BMW R100GS by Woidwerk






Written by Martin Hodgson
To say that the BMW R series range of motorcycles has become a huge hit in the custom scene is the mother of all understatements. Even the conservative big Bavarian caught on, releasing the R nineT five years ago and has the bruising R18 on the way. But aside from a cult following, the rest of the world has only ever appreciated the R series without falling totally in love. Not so in Germany, for the best part of 100 years the flat twins have been the number one machine. And to prove their passion runs deep, a customer approached Woidwerk for not one but two custom R bikes. This is the tale of the R100GS that emerged, no longer a big tourer but a sleek scrambler with plenty of custom style!

Woidwerk is run by master mechanic Ralf Eggl in the beautiful little town of Viechtach, that sits on the banks of the Regen river with the stunning Bavarian forests serving as his playground. This is a place where you can mount a strong case for owning just about any motorcycle in the BMW range. But the sheer versatility of the BMW Rs not only makes them the obvious choice but also means they act as almost the sole focus of Ralf’s business. He builds them to the highest standard in just about any style you can imagine and sells a range of his own custom parts that are of the highest quality.

So it’s little wonder that a man with a pair of Rs should walk through Ralf’s door, ?He wanted to have built a travel-ready scrambler from his GS. After a couple of interviews, he said that he still has an R80RT and whether we couldn’t build it as a caf racer twin. Of course I was happy and built the two bikes for him,? he smiles. But with the R80 missing the tank, it was the GS that was first on the chopping block. With the donor being a 1992 model and nearly 30 years old, it was decided that it would be taken back to a bare frame to do the build the right way.
Ralf simply doesn’t cut corners and after preparing the frame to his meticulously high standards, the rear subframe was removed. In its place goes a Woidwerk item that is built in house and can be purchased from the companies website as a bolt-on modification. Every aspect of the part exceeds OEM standards and in both design and execution, it’s a work of art! The revised rear end meant there was no longer a place for the huge plastic rear fender, so in its place Ralf has bolted a hand-rolled item that extends rearward to catch the spray, as well as down to the swingarm for full coverage.

Upfront the fender is just big enough to do the job and high mounted moto style and all the changes so far given a coat of black. To give the bike an instant cosmetic transformation the barnyard sized GS tank has been ditched in favour of a unit from a R80RT Monolever that gives the true traditional R look. The tank has been taken back to bare metal, fitted with a Monza filler cap before a friend of the owner took on the job of laying down the traditional BMW col...
