Bringing back the Vintage BMW ‘R51/2’

Kontrast Kreations have re-created one of the finest and rarest vinatage BMW bikes! The BMW '51/2' was on the market for only two years back in 1950 and 1951. Kontrast Kreations dismantled the engine and gearbox and rebuilt the new model from the rare bike. The original black-with-white paint job has been replaced with a gorgeous 'petrol' blue, giving the new R'51/2' a new vibe. The motorcycle's wheels were replaced with new spokes and repainted a brisk black and the bespoke seat pan and knee pads have been fabricated and upholstered in a gorgeous brown leather to compliment the vintage brooks bicycle grips around the handlebars. The original headlight and speedometer were left intact.
