Crowe Customs

When the owner of a custom builder’s shop needs to work on his own ride, chances are you’ll see a no-limits-barred pristine restoration show bike emerge. But James Crowe’s 1978 R80/7 is more likely seen around Portland, Oregon hauling firewood to a campsite or blazing new trails to local swimming holes, yet is still a stunner.

Appeared in the Winter 2012, BMW Motorcycle Magazine.
