A family affair, Pasquale Motors is a Bogotá, Colombia-based bespoke aftermarket motorcycle shop that’s owned and operated by Gustavo Pasquale and his two sons. The shop’s latest bike, the “Golden Beauty” was inspired by “the crowning jewel of Colombia’s Muisca native culture.” Guess what it is yet? It’s none other than the legendary golden city of El Dorado.
Beginning with a vintage BMW R90/6 from the mid-1970s, Pasquale Motors transforms this classic cafe racer with a board-seat that allows for the comfortable transport of two people and emphasizes the bike’s stylishly shaped gas tank from all visual angles. It is this handcrafted tank, along with its seamlessly integrated chassis, that naturally draw the most attention. The golden hue of the custom tank accentuates its unique curves, and the chassis is separated into two parts to both further the bike’s minimalist lines and also provide more knee room for the rider.
