BMW R75/5 racer

BMW R75/5 racer from Ritmo Sereno
Our favorite upmarket Japanese custom house Ritmo Sereno has worked its customary magic on this lovely BMW R75/5 from 1970. The discreet modifications fall within classic racing regulations: they include ported and polished heads for the air-cooled boxer motor, a modified flywheel and clutch, AP Lockheed front forks, uprated brakes and new electrics. As usual, the quality of Ritmo Sereno’s work is beyond compare: just check these stunning images.

    I visited Tokyo last year with the sole aim of checking out Ritmo Sereno. Siroh Nakajima and his crew make awesome bikes. The bikes look look even better in the flesh—it’s well worth the trip. Check out their recently completed Guzzi V7.

    RS have updated that bike and made it racier:

    I was in Tokyo last month and tracked down the shop for a look. Turned out they were closed for the day while racing at a local track (couldn’t read the sign of course!), so spent about an hour dribbling by the windows. Love to see it open.
