German BMW Classic Gets Italian Makeover

Last Updated on 25/08/2020Italian custom Motorcycle shop South Garage have taken the German no nonsense BMW R75/7 and turned it into a work of art!

Named the Nerboruta (Italian term for muscular), the guys at South Garage stripped the BMW down to the bare bones and then applied the kind of style and flair only a custom house in Milan could possibly come up with.

 

 

Look at that seat! It might be about as comfortable as a church pew but it looks amazing. I especially love the way they’ve continued it through to the rear fender.

 

 

When I think of BMW I picture a work horse, a bike that whenever I overtook in my youth always seemed to have the more mature rider who would be on his way to some distant part of Europe for the summer.

 

 

And here it is in all its glory. Part Cafe Racer, part Bobber, 100% custom.
