1979 BMW R65 with a surfboard rack  @FGIDEAS

Lovely 1979 BMW R65 with a surfboard rack stopped passers-by in their tracks with its understated elegance. It’s the work of Xabi Ithurralde, and it took him ten months to build. The slightly ungainly looks of the stock R65 are gone, replaced by the more athletic build of a scrambler: Xabi’s goal was to create “a narrow and light motorcycle to drive off road.” He chose a BMW R65 rather than a larger bike because the short-stroke boxer engine revs eagerly, and the weight—at just over 200 kg wet—is very manageable.
