BMW R1100 #77 “Bull” by Lucky Custom

It’s been a while since last Lucky Custom build feature.  And this one is way different than their previous one. They seem to have a distinctive style regarding tire choices… and the way they run the exhaust pipes. Also, they seem to like the scrambler style a lot. Their Honda NX was something fresh. This BMW 1100 is no different.

It was completely redesigned

Honestly, there was no other choice. As the donor 1998 BMW R1100S cannot be considered as a design piece. Its looks are on the other end of the beauty scale. Somewhere below the first Multistrada.

The frame was redesigned entirely here. A combination of the sportbike design with a trellis construction, similar to the one we know from Ducati Monster.

The trademark painted tires are there, wrapping the stock wheels. I have no idea how does the yellow paint put on the thread rather than the sidewall of the rubber, but it surely works for the photoshoot.

The exhaust is visible above the rear wheel – like the Lucky Custom likes to put them. The front fork comes from a BMW 1000. New frame and backbone line of the motorcycle required shorter frontend.

The paintjob resembles the BMW M performance colours. The brave choice to make the frame white – makes it stand out, especially while the lower part of the motorcycle seems 100% black.

The result is a mix of genres. That seems a lot more legit than the “stock” R NineT. The brand is there – but the problematic donor bike makes it easy to appreciate from the engineering perspective: Not only for the design but for the work required to modify the ugly touring bike into a stylish cafe racer. I just can imagine how many hours it took to build this custom mini fairing. And now to put this into perspective – multiply this for the tank, seat, rear frame.

Great job, a real gem in the custom scene.
