With over thirty custom builds already under his belt, Antoine Meister has developed an extensive client base and impressive resumé of builds, primarily BMWs. The achievement becomes even more astonishing when you learn that Antoine cranked out a couple of these stunners while pursuing a law degree. Your jaw hits the floor when you find out he’s only twenty-five and has no mechanical training to speak of.
Based just outside Zurich in the Swiss town of Bülach, Meister Engineering’s latest creation is a BMW R80/7 scrambler called ‘Geneva-Dakar.’ Long travel suspension, Heidenau K60 Scouts and that elevated beak give this airhead a take-no-prisoners stance the original Dakar probably wished it had.
The slender tank, humped and hooped rear and naked cockpit create a lean and aggressive presence. Check out the Domino throttle and Accossato risers and levers, and the minimalist switchgear and color matched plug wires and plumbing. Antoine’s attention to detail borders on perfection
