CRD #17 Ruby Ring
By Anthony van Someren - 26 Oct 12
Cafe Racer Dreams' Ruby Ring has been all over the web on places like BikeEXIF and anywhere else where the finest pro customs might feature, so although we're a bit late to the party we just had to make sure she was also featured here along side the other builds from Pedro Garcia's stable of stunning custom builds from Spain. BMW R100s are becoming very popular build donors, and the cafe/brat/scrambler hybrid seems to be the way to go with these robust German machines, but CRD stand apart from the crowd with stunning paint and high quality controls, grips and seats. This bike was built over six months from an '83 R100 for Enea, a CRD customer, and features; a 1040cc engine with shortened pistons, upgraded cylinders, connecting rods and camshaft, with Del'lorto carbs breathing through K&N Filters and a GR exhaust specially made for CRD. Bars are Renthal, Speedo is Motogadget, shocks by Hagon, sport clutch from Sachs, and most of the rest is custom made by Cafe Racer Dreams, and/or likely to be available on their online store. See the rest of the Cafe Racer Dreams lineup on their own stunning website, or browse their builds on the Bike shed CRD Category, and read an exclusive interview with Pedro Garcia for the Bike Shed HERE.
