Our Builds & Customer Bikes

Stu's BMW R nine T 'Pure Muscle'

Stu gave us a shout because he was looking to trade in his 2007 BMW R1200GS Adventure for something a little more flashy and suitable for his Sunday morning rides. The brief was to create something practical, rugged and with a slightly nostalgic feel - the sort of thing that a modern day Steve McQueen could hack around a mountain and then pull up outside The Bike Shed for a pint. We were in!

Chris' BMW R nine T 'Cafe Racer'

Chris came to us with a simple brief - build a stunning cafe racer R9T - and after a few quick chats we found ourselves looking more and more at true classic cafe racers and race bikes from the 50's and 60's. We set our sights on designing a bike we could imagine ourselves taking to the Isle of Man TT and giving Geoff Duke, John Surtees or Mike Hailwood a run for their money (we can only dream!). Here's how the build ended up, you can read more about it in our blog.

Pier City Cycles BMW R9FT Super Hooligan

In late 2016, we bit the bullet and decided to go out and buy our very own BMW R9T to play with. We wanted to create something cool, fun and something that we hadn’t seen before. Right about the same time that we were discussing ideas, the DTRA Hooligan series sprung to mind. We hadn’t yet seen a full 19″ wheeled Hooligan racer R9T so we set ourselves the task of being the first. The end product, our BMW R9FT, came together just as we hoped and now we’re just looking for the right day to get out, throw down some left turns and pin it!

It was featured on Pipeburn shortly after it was displayed at the Bike Shed show for BMW Motorrad UK, read about it here.


Nathan’s BMW R100 All Black Brat Scrambler

Nathan acquired a BMW R100RT which had had a bit work done previously but wanted to put his own personal touches to it, namely making it as stealthy as possible. H felt the bike seemed a little bit ‘bitsy’ and wanted us to hide a few exposed items and slim down the lines. We set to work stripping and chopping it until we ended up with the bike you see below.



Here are some further BMW R nine T projects we've worked on in our garage in Hove recently.

Jay's R9T Sport.
