the BMW R80 T63 by angry motors is a total black cafe racer

swiss garage angry motors are admirers of architecture, design, and art. influenced by these disciplines, it customizes a 1989 BMW ‘R80’ into this matte grey cafe racer named ‘T63’ with an understated elegance.

it took over 350 hours of effort, beer, sweat and music for angry motors to rebuild the BMW ‘R80/1989’. it chose this model for the striking mono-shock on the rear, and the iconic boxer engine. plus in terms of used 1989 motorbikes, it only had 36,000 km on the clock. on receiving the original motorcycle, it stripped its bare-bones and powder coated the frame, spray painted the motor and parts, and then rebuilt it completely with new seals, stainless bolts and bespoke pieces. as self-confessed minimalists, the workshop was only looking to fit parts to the bike that were absolutely necessary.



the swiss garage’s idea behind the design was to build a highly refined bike. the color scheme had to be an ‘all black design’, so it worked through its process, step by step by hand, taking approximately 350 hours. it calls it ‘T63’ as the bike has chunky michelin ‘T63’ tires, plus the ‘T’ stands for ‘tubo‘, an exact translation of the builder’s surname, patrick rohr, when it is translated from german to english.
