This Bespoke Custom BMW Was Inspired By The P-51 Mustang Fighter Plane

First introduced in 1942, the P-51 Mustang was without-a-doubt one of the most iconic fighter planes utilized by Allied forces in the Second World War, rivaled only by the likes of the venerable Curtiss P-40 Warkhawk and Supermarine Spitfire. And it’s the mighty Mustang that inspired the latest two-wheeled creation from Poland-based custom motorcycle builders, Ugly Motors.

Built around a 2002 BMW K1200RS — which was the Bavarian brand’s most powerful motorcycle yet upon its release — the project wonderfully incorporates the donor’s unique cast aluminum chassis into the custom’s design. Constituting the majority of the build’s bespoke bodywork is a single-piece, hand-formed tail and tank unit that sees a K&N filter jetting up through the middle of the one-off fuel-cell while the sharp new tail is perched atop a one-off subframe. Up front, a custom set of fighter-jet-inspired billet aluminum fork guards give the fully-faired touring bike a markedly more aggressive stance, while also acting as housing for its radiator and LED strip headlight. Finishing touches on this two-wheeled wonder include a laser-engraved custom top triple with integrated clip-ons, Rizoma-style reservoirs, a bespoke stainless steel exhaust culminating in an SC-Project can, Magura master cylinders linked to steel-braided lines, and full Motogadget electronics including an M-lock, M-unit (Blue), and Motoscope Pro display.
