Custom BMW R1200s with front swingarm


Swedish builder, Stellan Egeland, has built a BMW R1200S roadster with a Bimota Tesi-style front swingarm, hub-steer. Alternative front suspension systems always get my attention, especially when it comes from someone's garage. I like the trellis upper frame, riveted tank, frame color, and the use of a torquey, big air-cooled twin.
