BMW K1100 coffee racer to say goodbye to the custom world

They say that if you love what you do, you will not work any day in your life. They also say that work and pleasure should not be confused. After several years of hard work in the custom motorcycle industry, the Lithuanian Two Wheels Empire is switching to electric motorcycles. This BMW K1100 coffee racer is their “swan song”.

“We are honored to have been a part of this world.”, said the workshop founder, Matt. “Over the years, we have made several impressive creations, and the last one is just for us.

Named Casino Royale, this 1991 BMW K1100 RS is the third creation in this workshop’s Flying Brick coffee racer series. In general, it has the same stylish look as the previous two motorcycles, except that they are based on the K100 and that Casino Royale has the most expensive parts. In the true sense of the word, it represents the evolution of the mentioned series.

“It’s still far from perfect,” says Matt, “but it’s close. At the moment, very few things can be improved. “

The K1100 RS represents the pinnacle of BMW design from the 1990s. It is a motorcycle with a large touring armor and spoke wheels. None of this suited the workshop, so they decided to adapt the machine to their ideas.

Instead of factory wheels, octagon units from the older K100 were installed. The rear wheel is widened so that a wider tire can be placed on it. The choice fell on the Pirelli Angel GT.

Forward-facing Ohlins forks and Brembo brakes from the 2017 Aprilia Tuono 1000 R, along with Powerbrick Performance brake calipers. There is an Ohlins shock absorber in the back, and the rear brake is made to measure.

The back of fiberglass was installed, the leather seat is the work of the Lithuanian Twisted Brothers workshop, a new basement. The “dot on and on” at the back is a small LED tail light, with a slightly lowered license plate holder.

The tank has undergone some redesign, and there is also a front fender made of carbon fiber. The tank and rear are painted in Selenite Magno Gray gray, a color you can otherwise see on Mercedes models. The original cover of the book “Casino Royale” by Ian Fleming, after which it is named, is also painted on the tank.

Ahead are new levers, Brembo master brake cylinder, Motogadget speedometer, these buttons, mirrors and direction change indicators.

Casino Royal also received a lithium-ion battery, as a Motogadget control unit. The factory airbox has been replaced with a K&N filter, and a 4-in-1 exhaust system has been installed. We will also mention custom-made radiator guards, tank cover and Powerbrick foot controls.

“I would like to thank Fredrik Nistron from Sweden for his help in creating design solutions, but also for the investments,” Matt added. “Also a big thank you to Vidas Mokus, Juozas Pranskaitis and everyone in the Two Wheels Empire team for their hard work and effort. I especially thank my wife for her patience. “

“I’m turning to a new job, working in the electric motorcycle industry, and looking forward to the new creations that follow.”
