BMW R nineT ‘Yellow Baron’ by NCT Motorcycles

So often we see custom motorcycles that are rebuilds of old road veterans, we forget that even fresh-off-the-showroom-floor bikes can benefit tremendously from the touch of a good builder. Leave it to the folks at NCT Motorcycles – out of Austria – to remind us. Their latest creation, dubbed the Yellow Baron, is a custom job on a BMW R nineT scrambler that had less than a mile on the odometer.

While the original bike was hardly something that needed to be reworked, the team at NCT took tools to it anyhow – rebuilding the entire rear frame and fitting it with a new perch to start. They also retrofit a fuel tank from a BMW R100 RS to give this new bike a more vintage look, swapped the brake and hydraulic clutch controls for Magura ones, and fabricated a swing arm-mounted bracket for the LED tail light and rear license plate. Our favorite addition, however, is the aggressive-looking BMW tubeless spoked wheels that give this bike a much-needed stylistic bite. [H/T: BikeEXIF]
