Don’t get us wrong, the BMW Survivor was still a wildly popular bike when it came out – evidenced by the fact that several build units have been sold since its original unveiling. 

Still, when something that pretty breaks cover, it’s only reasonable that the builder find a way to create something more accessible to reach a wider range of clientele – and that’s just what Fran Manen did with the all-new BMW R100 ‘Sport Edition.’

Differences for this Makaga-based build include downgrading to a Showa fork (versus the Survivor’s Springer accoutrement), as well as a new rear shock absorber system and standard levers (instead of converted). The Sport Edition also flaunts a different set of buttons, front turn signals, and a new headlight. 

With a current limbo-low price of €27,000 – €30,000 and the ability to work with LDK in choosing between BMW R100, R80, R65, and R45 base bikes, as well as other accessory details, the sky’s the limit.
