Birdcage BMW?

Revival Cycles builds some crazy bikes and this Birdcage BMW is definitely different. Setting aside the insane amount of money this bike would cost to build, would you ride this?

For Sale: 1972 BMW R75/5 (Upper Marlboro, Maryland) $17,000

So there’s this guy in Maryland, well actually Belize, that supposedly has this fully restored 1972 BMW R75/5 with sidecar and trailer. It’s sitting in a crate somewhere – I assume it’s in Maryland. He’s asking for $17,000. Apparently he moved to Belize, was planning on shipping the bike to Belize, but now he doesn’t

For Sale: 1983 BMW R100 (Fife, Washington) $10,500

Here’s a badass 1983 BMW R100 cafe racer for sale outside of Seattle. The list of mods is too long to list here. I’m not a BMW guy, so I don’t know if $10,500 is too much, but the bike looks really cool and totally done. As a frame of reference, here’s an R100 in
