Kingston Completes Its Art Deco BMW Trilogy With The ‘Good Ghost’ Moto

Four-years-ago Dirk Oehlerking of Kingston Customs fame unveiled his art deco-inspired BMW-based “White Phantom,” which he later followed up with the sleeker and more refined “Black Phantom.” And now, for 2020, the renowned custom builder has completed his two-wheeled trilogy with the all-new “Good Ghost.”

Commissioned by the Haas Moto Museum in Dallas, Texas, the project began life as a 1980 BMW R100 RS, though has since been treated to numerous BMW parts from the massive collection of components that Dirk’s amassed over the years. Unlike the first two bikes, the bodywork on the Good Ghost has more of an old-school streamliner aesthetic, with the front fairing extending up over the build’s handmade clip-ons, and a single-piece brown leather and suede saddle running up the top of the bike and sporting a stacked quad analog instrument display just below the top triple. The entire piece is on a hinge and can fold up to reveal storage space, plus there is a tool and mess kit tucked into the rear wheel covers. The front also boasts a BMW 2002-style kidney grill, while the back has a long pair of horizontal exhaust pipes that come to a slashed point at the very rear.
