Chicago-bound cafe from Kevils

The bike will be kept on display in the foyer of the company’s skyscraper for all to see during the long winter months of Chicago – but once the weather improves it will be ridden around the mean city streets!

Kevils came up with the colour scheme, taking inspiration from the colours of the latest Lamborghini greys and Ferrari yellows, featuring the usual Kevils trademark parts like a two-into-one exhaust system, leather tuck ’n roll trim and a hidden gel battery.

Other features include a black-textured cocktail shaker silencer, RAASK rearsets, a Kevils signature seat unit, Hagon shocks, black ace senior bars, brushed stainless top yoke plate and white face speedo.

Founded by Kev Hill working from his home garage five years ago, Kevils Speed Shop is now based in Paignton, Devon. Kevils only re-work twin shock BMW R80 and R100 motorcycles and the company has become one of the world’s premier bespoke BMW cafe racer builders and customisers.
