A man by the name of Samuel Kao of JSK Custom Design has created a brilliant custom replica of the BMW R nineT that exudes style. The basic idea? Build a motorcycle that’s wildly fun on both the streets and through dirt roads.
Oddly named “The Chocolate Slider,” this bike takes its framework from the R nineT, but includes a few adjustments that make it look incredible. The exhaust headers run high so that they don’t accumulate dirt while off-roading, and they have a thermo-wrapped coating to keep the rider’s legs from burning. This custom BMW R nineT also includes a new custom aluminum gas tank and tail combination. You’ll also notice the carbon fiber, BMX-style handlebars which are intended to reduce fatigue and improve cornering leverage when going fast on dirt roads. Most impressive, though, is likely the paint job, which is inspired by BMW Motorsport. [Via]
