Diamond Atelier Drops a Series of Insanely Good Looking Custom BMW Bikes

Coming across a new bike design that we feel needs to be shared is quite the treat. Coming across four from the same company is, well… four times the treat! That’s what we get with the unveiling of Diamond Atelier‘s finished Mark II series of custom designed BMW cafe racers. The motorbike atelier first revealed its designs through concept renderings around a year ago, and now they’re here in real life, and they’re just as good looking as you would have hoped. The bikes themselves are BMW’s two-valve Monolever generation, of which Munich-based Diamond has taken and turned into four different colorway models.

Some of the credit for the bikes’ good looks go to BMW’s in-house designer Julian Weber, who was brought in to help out with the custom job. As to how to get your hands on one (or all four?!) of these low-riding beauts, the bikes are made-to-order out of Germany with three different finished tiers, and the option of an 800cc or a 1000cc engine. Tier one includes modified 41mm BMW fork, refurbished original rear shocks, powder coated original wheels, street tires and 285mm BMW brake discs. Tier two adds adds custom wheels and semi-slick tires, and tier three includes a Supersport upside-down fork, CNC-machined triple clamps, Wilbers rear shocks and 320mm aftermarket brake discs. Head over to Diamond Atelier’s official website for more information, but in the meantime, check out the bikes in the visuals throughout.
