For the upcoming Pure & Crafted festival in Berlin, which celebrates music and motorcycles, German customizer Krautmotors has unveiled its latest creation. Coming with an exposed chassis and origami-like front end, the bike is based on a BMW C evolution scooter and was built by taking apart an existing bike. After the Krautmotors team had dismantled the BMW C, they were able to add the chunky new front piece, which was inspired by a 1920s cubic tea set by renowned product designer Erik Magnussen.

The bike, named “E-lisabad” after its creator’s grandmother, will make its first appearance at Pure & Crafted, before being presented at the Glemseck 101 motorcycling festival in Germany in early September. At the moment, this bike is strictly one off — and there’s no news yet on if any more will ever hit the market.
