According to the Facebook post,

BMW has cleared the parking lot with this home run custom. The BMW R 5 Hommage.

Built around an original 500 cc Two-cylinder engine, the remaining R 5 Hommage “took shape in the Noren brothers’ workshop based on sketches by the BMW Motorrad Design Team.”

Fitted with a specially designed super charger, the Hommage boosts its original HP of 26bhp to more modern levels.

This bike is an exceptional example of classic meets contemporary. Bravo, we’ll take two.
