Hello Sexy! Rodney Aguiar’s Custom BMW R80ST – Envy

While at the International Motorcycle Show in New York City, Rodney Aguiar’s BMW custom R80ST called “Envy” caught my eye. The sexy unencumbered look of the rear wheel with it’s shaft drive and no fender or subframe, retro pan-style saddle and angular tank create an intriguing mix of new and old that is very appealing. Round that all out with the GSX-R front end with low, wide slung bars like a Monster and I bet it’s a great ride.

Three fatal sparks, have set the hearts of all
On Fire.
