This Bespoke BMW Build Blurs The Lines Between Fine Art & Custom Motorcycles

After previously amassing a massive fortune in the business world, Bobby Haas opened the Haas Motorcycle Museum in Dallas, Texas, where the ex venture capitalist commissions idiosyncratic one-off builds from some of the world’s most talented customs shops, routinely inviting builders to experiment with new ideas and push the two-wheeled envelope. And one motorcycle that brilliantly demonstrates what the Haas Collection is all about is the latest work from Jay Donovan, a 1963 BMW 60/2 that’s been transformed into an alloy-clad masterpiece.

Dubbed the “Amadeus,” this highly-involved piece of rolling art — which is comprised of all bespoke parts aside for the engine — blurs the line between sculptures and custom motorcycles. Amadeus is built around a one-off frame that boasts an incredibly unique rear suspension setup, with a single sweeping line running from the swing-arm to the front faring, while a second aluminum section connects the seat to the front end. This breathtaking sweeping X frame is further complimented by other handmade touches such as steel fenders, inverted hand-levers with internally routed lines, a pair of megaphone-style exhausts, and a tall seat, rear-sets, and clip-ons that force the rider into a full tuck. To see more of this incredible work, you can check out Jay Donovan’s website linked below.
