THE R NINE T BUILD DIARIES: ENTRY NINE; THE BADGES.
As the R Nine T entered it’s final stages we began to focussed on the finishing details, like the badges for the enormous hand shape tank and the front engine cover. A simple “buy and stick-on” solution just wouldn’t be fair to such a special bike – the brand ornaments needed to be as unique as the bike itself – an amalgam of old and new.
We called upon a good friend of ours to bring along his furnace and to show us the ropes at the fine art of sand casting Aluminium. We would make use of the spare bolts and alloy parts we removed from the bike in the build process and re-incarnate them as badges for the R-Nine T.
The BMW x Deus R-Nine T will soon be revealed, stay tuned.
