BMW R Nine T ‘Giggerl’ By Blechmann

Jul 6, 2018

Category: Rides

While to the non-native speaker, “Blechmann” might sound like some kind of ancient Alemanian boogie-man, it’s actually more of an honorific. The nickname, given to one of Germany’s most legendary motorcycle customizers Bernard Nauman, translates to “tin man,” and Bernhard Naumann wears it like a badge of honor. The Tin Man’s latest creation is a great and powerful Custom BMW R NineT that shows that he is worthy of his metallurgical moniker.

While he is known as a tinkerer, the works Naumann creates are no tinker toys. It is a masterwork of metalwork and imagination. With a bit of a Postapocalyptic piquancy, he has wrapped the bike in sheet metal (something that would probably be anathema to most lovers of the brand). Naumann describes his bike-customization as an art form used to bring fantasies to life. The proof is in the pudding, and that pudding is a fantastically futuristic motorcycle built out from a 2016 BMW R nineT. Blechmann the Great created a homemade body shape and installed a handmade exhaust system, a new seat bench and modified wheel rims. He finished the R Nine T off with a fresh paintjob: the classic BMW livery. When the smoke had cleared, what he found was a forward-heavy, robustly muscular super-bike from the future. Naumann saw something else, however, and decided to call the bike “Giggerl” – the Bavarian word for chicken.
