Combining an old frame and engine with modern components and tuning know-how, Japanese BMW tuner Ritmo Sereno have created a custom R80 that would have been impossible in its own time, the early '80s, looks like its from the '70s yet can be competitive in twins racing in the 2000s. Of particular note are the 41mm Keihin carbs, the lengthened Öhlins monoshock that attaches to the driveshaft and the two-into-one exhaust. Bodywork is inspired by the R60/5 from the late '60s, but painted in the Daytona Orange of the 1973 R90S.
