Between function & design

Paul Brauchart and Philipp Rabl call their motorcycles “A functional piece of art”. Minimalistic design, a lot of hand crafted work and lots of new ideas combine the two Austrians under their label Vagabund Handcrafted Motorcycles. The claim: to find the best compromise between use and design. Latest addition – from the Graz workshop after the 1972 Honda CB450 K5 is 1992 BMW R100R. Whether frame, tank, exhaust, fork or mirror – anywhere the artists put on hand and equipped their own design of BMW.
