The style-rich folks at BikeExif found this 1979 BMW motorcycle at a bike show in Biarritz. It was created by Xabi Ithurralde and took 10 months to build. A great consideration was taken to the added weight of the surfboard, reducing the weight of the headlight and seat, as well as choosing the 200kg (440 lb.) R65 engine versus a larger bike.
In addition to the stunning surfboard, a great deal of attention has been paid to the seat. Remy Carrait, a world-class tannery that supplies Louis Vuitton and Hermes, has supplied the leather. Head over to Xabi’s site, to check out more photos.
The sumer may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the best of it. Few cars or bikes live up to that spirit of fun summer living like this combination.
