Despite being released nearly half-a-century-ago, On Any Sunday continues to have an enormous impact on today’s motorcycling world. The McQueen-produced flick not only introduced the public to a new riding discipline and attracted countless legions of new riders into the fold, but also spawned an enormous number of one-off tribute machines paying homage to the seminal ’71 film. One of the latest machines inspired by the Academy Award-winning documentary is this marvelous KTM 950 SMR from South Africa’s Fabman Creations.
Fittingly dubbed the “Bullet,” the Austrian supermoto was stripped off its Kiska-designed plastics and fitted with a new hooped, kicked-up subframe that’s been capped off with a ribbed leather, scrambler-style saddle. In place of the MX-influenced bodywork, the Port Elizabeth shop has bestowed the KTM with a custom tank and matching radiator shrouds, front and side number plates, fenders front and rear, fork guards, and a skid-plate/belly-pan combo piece with a dual-lined bottom. Other noteworthy additions to Bullet include a revised cockpit with new bars, Trailtech instrumentation, custom switchgear, bar-end LED indicators, Domino grips, plus a set of spoked rims (17/19”) plucked from a Ducati Multistrada adventure bike and shod in Scorpion Rally rubber, and last but not least: a gorgeous, lobster-cut, dual one-into-one, hand-polished stainless steel exhaust system culminating in a pair of under-seat cans.
