R ninet goes green
See new BMW Street Scrambler at this weekend’s Carole Nash MCN Show
Devon-based BMW specials gurus Kevils Speedshop have just finished work on this Street Srambler based around BMW’S big-selling R ninet.
The firm says: “Our conversion doesn’t completely redesign the bike, it’s all about retaining its usability including being able to carry the other half and personalising it so retaining its value.”
The bike will be on display in the Custom Zone and custom competition at this weekend’s Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show alongside machines from Old Empire, Rolling Art Motorcycles and Valespeed and more.
Tickets cost £21 for standard admission, senior citizen (over 65) are £18, student Friday tickets are £18, concessions are for Friday only) and kids under 15 go free. New for 2017 are paddock passes, which cost £40 for adults (£20 for a child under 15) and include tiered seating for the live action and a VIP meet and greet. The show takes place at London’s EXCEL from February 1719.
