Kevil's Rooster, the Ageless BMW Custom Bobber [Photo Gallery]
The Rooster, is an old R1000RT BMW restored to an even greater glory that it had back in the day, all clad in a black satin coat of paint with delicate pinstripes and smooth golden accents to enhance its wonderful simplicity.
Commissioned by a graphic designer in London, the Rooster screams vintage attitude: the sprung leather solo seat matches the rubber fork protectors and the two-tone cylinder paint scheme, while the whole aspect of the bike brings together the aggressive stance of a flat-tracker and the proud riding position of a retro fighter.
The satin shine is complemented by the mellow glow of the polished exhaust line, with a striking, sparkling accent of the 2-in-1 mirror-finish silencer. Add in the fat tires shoeing the snowflake rims, the simple instrumentation, and the conductor bag hiding a gel battery and here you have, the Kevil's Rooster - a street machine like no other.
Pinstripes have been executed by hand by tattoo guru Simon Dent from Exmouth, Devon, UK.
