BMW Bobber by Black Diamond®
Sit on it and drive off.
From the original BMW R100
to a smoothed diamond.
Incredibly many hours of work – hundreds of screws – and much more.
In our manufactury, we transform a BMW R80 or BMW R100 into a dreamlike bobber with exceptional street approval in Switzerland.Sit on it, start the engine and drive off!No stress for you, uncomplicated and definitely freshly proofed by Swiss official vehicle government.
At the beginning, we go in search of a basic bike: low mileage, generally good condition, regular maintenance – all features that we attach great importance to. Based on our experience and know-how, we know exactly which bikes are suitable for converting to a diamond bike. The two-cylinder boxer engines built from 1976 to 1984 were also available in different versions. We clearly prefer the double suspension models with the typical star rims. Compared to Germany, these models are a bit more difficult to find in Switzerland – that’s why we always have individual basic bikes in stock. So we can start immediately to smoothing our next diamond bike. So you don’t have to buy a base bike first.
All components of your future Black Diamond bike will be carefully checked, cleaned, glass bead blasted and replaced if necessary. Of course, we replace all wear parts such as the coupling, seals, wheel bearings, carburetor float and screws. Often, after 40 years, the power cables are also at the end of their lifetime – for this reason, the old harness is disposed of and laid completely fresh in the rebuilding with an M-Unit from MotoGadget.

We are partners of Cembra Money Bank and can offer you a suitable financing in any case – without full headlight, fully deductible from the tax and the most important thing: From the beginning YOU are the owner of the motorcycle!
ALL used components are 100% approved! This also applies to the installed sports air filters or the handmade exhaust system.
The original frame of the BMW R100 is expertly remodeled. The unnecessary original brackets (electrics), the rear frame and the strut mounts are thoroughly removed and all areas cleaned. Subsequently, self-developed conversion parts are used. The CNC milled and turned seat tube promises absolute perfection and the waterjet-cut strut mounts adapt perfectly to the frame. Of course, the entire frame is glass bead blasted and then powder-coated. This ensures long-term durability and good resistance.
The original, almost 50-year-old harness of the motorcycle is disposed of. In the reconstruction of the motorcycle, the entire harness is renewed and freshly constructed. We use quality products from the Motogadget (M-Unit) brand. All power cables are laid fresh and, if possible, hidden directly in the handlebars. This ensures an absolutely clean look!
Of course, qualitative branded products are also used for flashers, taillights and headlights.
The final drive and the gearbox are fully opened and completely disassembled. The wear parts such as gears are carefully checked and reworked if necessary.
Before assembly, the components are also blasted and freshly powder-coated. All seals are renewed and all bearings are replaced with quality products.
The gears are freshly adjusted for smooth forwarding and switching without a big hick hack.
The entire engine is freshly assembled and completely revised to 100. The entire motor housing is thoroughly cleaned, checked for defects and glass bead blasted as well as powder-coated. The cylinder heads are completely disassembled, thoroughly cleaned, checked for wear and, of course, reworked. New plug tubes, a completely new bearing, new valve guides and outlet valve seat rings speak for themselves and another 40 years of road use.
All parts of the Diamond Bike are thoroughly cleaned, blasted and powder-coated. Each tank is wet-painted by an artist from Italy and turned into an absolute unique piece. Only in this way can you be sure that you really have a unique piece.
