Black Heart Custom Motorcycles’ BMW R80

Nick Corlett works under the moniker “Blackheart Custom Motorcycles” and started modifying motorcycles after he bought a 2002 Triumph Bonneville and did a mild, bolt-on customization. “This is my first proper motorbike build,” Corlett says of his 1985 BMW R80 . “I loved the idea of taking a bike, totally rebuilding it, and making it my own, and I settled on the R80 as I liked some of the other builds I’d seen, and it appeared relatively easy to work on.” Over the last two years Corlett spent much of his free time in his garage, building this Beamer and documenting his experiences and learnings on his YouTube channel, and the COVID-19 lockdown allowed Corlett the extra time needed to get his bike off the lift and on the road.
