Blitz Motorcycles is an up and coming garage based in France, made up of 3 talented guys named Fred (mechanics/electrics), Hugo (mechanics/artistic direction) and Léo (mechanics/welding). Another great motorcycle emerges from the garage is this magnificently ragged BMW R100/7 street tracker.

The boys started by painting the R100/7 engine with high temperature matt black paint. After removing the original BMW tank, they replaced it with a vintage 1970’s Honda tank. The tank isn’t the only borrowed part: the headlight is from a vintage race car, the tail light (which includes a brake light) is a 1940s bicycle rear light, and the bars are off a Kawasaki Z650. Blitz also reworked the electrical system and the result is a stunning but honest motorcycle – simple, but loaded with detail. Take a look!
