I came across this. I'm really liking the style of this bike, it has the colour and feel of the old Brit cafe racers I remember as a kid in the 60's. Just throw in the smell of hot Castrol R and a few oil leaks

I'm with you - that's one of the most beautiful BMW cafe racers I've seen. I love when they have the right bits, but they're not overly shiny or bling-y. It looks mean and purposeful. Love it!

I am absolutely in love with this bike. Simpe and beautifully executed. The lines are near perfect to me, and I love that they use the stock seat.

Actually head to this page:

http://www.ritmo-sereno.com/customfile/index.html (make sure you open in chrome to enjoy the engrish)

Click every single link down the right hand side and revel in the Ritmo.....

Here is the bike above:

Any idea what that tail light is?

I'm not a great fan of the cafe racer thing, too many pictures of bikes that have been hacked about and ending up with por design and poor workmanship, but this bike is absolutely wonderful.
