A street-bike named desire.

BMW R90S for restore boxerlust

Starting up in 03/2015

The bike: A BMW R90S from 1974. Rotting away in a garage in Portugal during 20 years. Retrieved in poor conditions. The concept: A tribute to the BMW R90S.

During the project some people asked why we used such an iconic bike for a build. "Why don't you go for an original restore?" Sorry guys, our bike - our rules! Many original components were lost, so we decided to create our own parts. In aluminium and adapted directly to the bike. No chinese aftermarket cafe racer components. Built not bought.

The idea was simple: A homage to the original but with a sporty soul. We are about to prepare a presentation to BikeExif. Stay curious, we'll be back!

Oporto Motorworks - Motorbikes, riding machines, restore, custom-buildStarting in 2015 we had just in mind to recover an old motorbike which was kept in a garage for more than 20 years. But The Lord moves in mysterious ways – so do we! Our small garage project became famous and we were asked to build other bikes. One thing leads to another, we found fellow experts to work with and our long-term passion turned into a profession. This was the kick-off to a new adventure named: Oporto Motor Works. Here we are, with actual projects under contract and others on the hold.

This page is our ‘hub’ to all new projects we launch. Here you can find all related links to the bikes we build and a sneak preview on future stuff. Occasionally we expose potential basic vehicles we have available in our network. If one of those bikes attracts your attention be free to ask us for an individual build or restore.

To keep in touch with the progress of our actual projects please follow the register above.

The header of this post was inspired by the song Bat out of hell performed by Meatloaf in 1977. Enjoy that wonderful peace of music which is considered as one of the most impressive songs dedicated to motorbikes ever.

Let there be Rock…

Jochen Siebenrock - to be exact. We know this guy since the early 80ies. This was the time when we were messing around with nothing...

Get your motor runnin’…

That was the idea. It took some time to come true but after almost 12 month the engine was brought back to life. Not yet on...

The first build is the deepest…

The first build is never a straight story. Many ideas and a lot of time passed by. But every build has its very early past:...
