KESSEL COFFEE RUN. Ironwood’s ‘Latte Stormtrooper’ BMW R80 Bobber

Written by Andrew Jones Since 2012, Dutch shop Ironwood Motorcycles have pretty much dominated the classic BMW custom market in Western Europe. So much so, that their style has pretty much become shorthand for an entire genre of custom Beemers. And while many may have copied, it’s their ability to break the mould and think outside the square of their own fame that proves they’ve still got what it takes. Like this ‘85 BMW R80 bobber, for instance. Just like a old-school southern haircut, it’s ...

Stingy driverless cars will clog future streets instead of parking
