THE FIVE / 007

1978 BMW R100

Since starting Federal Moto, we haven't really done a true classic cafe racer. After we snagged this old airhead from Nathaniel Salzman, it felt like the perfect chance to tackle one. We wanted something trimmed down, simple, and like always, a small nod to the past. The palette and trim we landed on ended up mimicking the 'Lotus 77 John Player Special', so we decided to name her after the iconic racer (hence the name "The Five").
