It's not uncommon for modernized vintage designs to completely lose its soul throughout the customization process; that is not the case when it comes to the Ton-Up BMW R80 Indira Motorcycle. This bike maintains its original spirit while receiving some exciting updates that bring the retro roadster into the 21st century.

Subtle yet meaningful, the changes to the Ton-Up BMW R80 Indira Motorcycle include "a new fuel tank, a lowered front suspension, a shortened sub-frame, a new seat, smaller handlebars, headlight, taillight, and indicators, a new exhaust, and handsome black and brown livery," reports Uncrate. "Yet the BMW engine at its heart is still there, visible as ever, an indication to fellow gearheads of the bike's rich heritage."
