A BMW bike fit for Lawrence of Arabia
Aside from the obvious khaki colour scheme, modifications include a pared-back sub-frame and exhaust system, dynamic engine tuning, chunky off-road tyres and – hipster alert – a handlebar-mounted Leica camera. Incidentally, this bike is currently offered for sale in the Classic Driver Market. It might appeal primarily to urban hipsters, but if you are planning a trans-Saharan adventure, this could be just the tool for the job. How it fares in guerilla train-wrecking raids, on the other hand, is another question altogether.
