Who would have thought that the original, goofy named BMW F650 Funduro 650 (right) – the bike which evolved over the years into my current project 650X – could be turned into the cool urban tracker pictured on the left.
It can be done, according to this post pinned up on the Bike Shed describing the custom build by Red Hot Chilli from Szczecin in Poland. Gone are the dumpy looks; stripped back to reveal what looks like all the bike you need to have fun on.
But then again, in the words of the character from Withnail & I, I had ‘gone on holiday by mistake’, or in this case left it too late in the season. By the end of that trip I ended up feeling a bit cooked, like old Withnail on the left.
