PSYCHODRAMA. The ‘Schizzo’ BMW R nineT Cafe Racer by Walzwerk
The rather edgily named ‘Schizzo’ series of builds from Germany’s Walzwerk Racing were intended to show just how changeable the BMW R80 and R100 monolever bikes can be. You name the style, the bike can probably handle it. With the shop pumping out a massive amount of these bikes in 2017 alone, it’s probably fair to say that it has been a big winner for them. But what would it look like if they gave an R nineT the same treatment. This is what.
“Everybody knows that we are not committed to any particular motorcycle brand, says Waltzwerk Racing’s Marcus Walz. “But in 2017, we’ve built over twenty of our Schizzo Beemers, which makes it a bestseller for us. Many people have asked us why we don’t built something similar, but based on a R nineT. So what we did is to develop a modern interpretation using a R nineT as a base. We had it on display at the custom bike Show in Bad Salzuflen last weekend, and it was a huge success; the first example was sold right there at the show.”
