R 1200 C Bobschopster: Bob Henig
1998 BMW R 1200 C #ZA63432
1,170cc A63 Boxer Twin 61 hp @ 5,000 rpm
BMW had hoped the R 1200 C would persuade a few riders over from dominant Harley-Davidson, but dealers like Bob Henig couldn’t even get the Harley guys to look until he transformed one into the “Bobschopster” seen here. Technicians at Bob’s BMW handled the electronics, while Dirty Hands Choppers designed a new frame, fuel tank, exhaust, and fenders. Redneck Engineering made the springer-style fork, John Longo the custom seat, and Bob suggested the black bedliner paint.
