Austria’s Titan Motorcycles has always marched to the beat of its own drum, producing a diverse array of custom bikes ranging from Bavarian bobbers to Japanese V-Twin dirt-fighters, and practically everything in-between. And Titan’s latest work just might be the Graz outfit’s wildest and most outside-the-box build to date, with a titanium-clad custom BMW dubbed ‘the Shark.’
The build started life as a mid-70s R75 before being torn down to the frame. The subframe’s been replaced with a custom titanium leaf-spring that supports a genuine Sturgeon fish leather saddle and a unique finned titanium tail section fabricated by the idiosyncratic moto-design genius that is Blechmann. There’s also a handmade tank and an aggressive, blade-like headlight cowl setup shrouding a pair of stacked LED’s that, like the tail, are Blechmann-built and constructed from titanium. The boxer twin’s also been treated to a Siebenrock Power Kit, bumping displacement up to 860ccs before bestowing the bike with K&N pod filters and a snaking two-into-one exhaust terminating in a slash-cut, honeycombed pipe. Rounding out the two-wheeled wonder are LSL rear-sets, clip-ons wrapped in Sturgeon leather grips, Kellerman bar-end LEDs, a Motogadget Motoscope Mini, Brembo M4 calipers, custom-tuned mono-shock, and a set of Ducati Monster 696 forks slotted in 999 Superbike triples.
