Vintage BMW motorcycles, restored, modernized and reborn.


A Roughchild motorcycle is exactly the vintage motorcycle you’ve been looking for.


Roughchild Motorcycles are original BMW motorcycles from the 1970’s and 1980’s that have been completely disassembled and rebuilt to exacting standards. Upgrades are made from the frame up, from gusseting and bracing to modern electrical systems optimized with today’s technology. The combination of professional restoration processes and well-thought out mechanical upgrades make for a truly unique and rewarding riding and ownership experience.


Striving for perfection. Refined and purposeful, stylish and timeless.

It’s a bike that urges you to go faster—and farther —than you’d expect.
