Diamond Atelier, a Munich-based motorcycle shop, has overcome their biggest challenge with the MBW Mark II Series. Through three years of successful builds, the shop has faced the challenge of being able to meet the high international demand for their bikes. As you can imagine, a shop that deals in custom bikes of the highest quality may not have the highest output. With the Mark II, Diamond Atelier will be able to more fully meet the demand for their bikes.
The Mark II starts out with a 1980s model BMW boxer motor—the two valve Monolever with a 800cc or 1000cc engine. (For those looking to save a little on the price, you can supply your own donor bike. Diamond Atelier will subtract the value of the bike from the cost of the build. If you don’t have a donor bike, they can source one.). With a donor bike in hand, Diamond Atelier then puts their own slant on it. There are three different variations of the Mark II, each with their own specs. The Stage 2 bike comes with the modified original 41mm BMW fork, a refurbished original rear shock, custom spoke wheels (front: 2.5” x 17”; back: 4” x 17”), semi-slick tires, and 285mm BMW brake discs.
The design is a collaboration between Diamond Atelier and BMW Motorrad designer Julian Weber and presents the aggressive and low-slung silhouette that Diamond Atelier is known for.
