Designed and executed to perfection by collaboration between BMW Motorrad and the Swedish brothers, Ronny and Benny Noren known for their immaculate custom bike building skills. The Noren brothers build the gorgeous main frame of the BMW R5 Hommage that you can see here in these incredible pictures, and this is not all, the Noren brothers did the beautiful tank and the rear fenders of the BMW R5 Hommage as well in a fairly time-honoured design philosophy. The engine of the BMW R5 Hommage comes from the original motorcycle that was damaged in a crash during racing, this engine was supercharged to get a fair boost from the original engines 26 bhp power output.
