Following a dragster conversion of its flagship R18 by Roland Sands, BMW Motorrad has once again teamed up with another motorcycle workshop for yet another custom R18, this time turning to Germany’s own Bernhard Naumann of Blechmann.
Taking a more unconventional approach with this custom job, Naumann decided to first focus on the rear of the bike and move forward from there. A stop light from Kellermann sits at the back while the motorcycle’s stock supporting structure holds up the new fender, seat, and pillion, leading up to a heavily modified fuel tank that is now narrower and carries knee cut-outs for a more sinuous flow. Up front, the designer pairs sportier panels with customized headlights boasting a kidney-shaped design reminiscent of his “Giggerl” R nineT project, all tied together by a sleek black paint job and BMW Motorrad’s iconic white pin-stripes.
Overall, the custom project took Blechmann’s team a staggering 450 hours to create. You can take a closer look in the gallery up above.
