Based in Luxembourg, BLACKTRACK Motors is small independent workshop that was founded in 2016 by Sacha Lakic. In addition to a clear proclivity for V-Twin-powered donors, BLACKTRACK possesses an incredible eye for design that’s given way to a handful of custom builds that look more like high-end boutique production models than they do one-off builds. Sharing the custom moto shop’s passion for mechanics and design, luxury watch brand Bell & Ross has teamed up with BLACKTRACK Motors, commissioning a one-off build that’s easily BLACKTRACK’s most impressive project to date — and debuting a limited edition chronograph watch that shares design elements with the one-of-one bike.
Dubbed the BLACKTRACK BT-06, the Bell & Ross-commissioned bike uses a big-bore V-Twin donor from Indian Motorcycle, though aside from the powertrain and certain pieces of its underlying framework, very little of the stock cruiser remains. In typical BLACKTRACK fashion, the build is an ultra-sleek and modern take on a cafe racer that incorporates elements of contemporary street fighter builds. Riding on ultra-premium Rotobox Bullet carbon-fiber wheels and sporting custom BLACKTRACK-branded Beringer braking hardware, the bike features a waspish tail section set atop a custom subframe, a super angular one-off tank, a squared-off belly pan, one-off side engine covers, and a bespoke headlight nacelle. Slotting a pair of top-shelf Öhlins forks, the BT-06 also boasts a bespoke machined and brushed billet top triple with a custom slab that accommodates a BR 03-94 BLACKTRACK Chronograph. Nestled just behind the watch is a Motogadget Motoscope Mini digital display and warning light set mounted flush at the top of the custom tank.
Moving on to the watch, the Bell & Ross BR 03-94 BLACKTRACK Chronograph is a motorsport-themed timepiece that’s based on Bell & Ross’ existing BR 03-94 chronograph. Water resistant down to 100 meters, the watch is constructed around a 42mm matte black ceramic case that’s been capped off with a unique octagonally-shaped bezel that gives the watch a more geometric look that mirrors the BT-06 motorcycle’s sharp, origami-esque tank and bodywork. Powering the watch is one of Bell & Ross’ BR-CAL.301 automatic movements which offer a 42-hour power reserve. Mated to the case is a black calfskin and synthetic fabric strap with a black PVD-coated steel buckle and red accent stitching that matches the dial’s red seconds hand, date window text, and first sub-dial hand.
Limited to just 500 units worldwide, the Bell & Ross BR 03-94 BLACKTRACK Chronograph Watch is available now, with pricing set at $6,900.
