Building like no other.
<p>You are driven by the fascinating original. It’s a passion that dominates you. For you, every detail, every technical feature counts. You love this feeling and bring it to life on the street, on the racetrack and now finally also at home: the first M LEGO® model ever and the largest LEGO® Technic motorcycle model to date has been created in close cooperation with LEGO® Technic designers: The LEGO® Technic M RR at a scale of 1:5. The specifications were clear – maximum precision to make what had previously been impossible possible. Parts were designed from scratch if they did not meet the strict requirements, something that was also done with the original. That’s exactly what “Born on the Racetrack. Build at home.” represents.</p>

Created with strength and grace
BMW R 18 The Wal by Shinya Kimura
<p>Fuel tanks and jerseys, helmets and tools, calligraphy and photography: the workshop – or rather the wonderful and orderly chaos – of Shinya Kimura, one of the most sought-after customizers in the world (and one of the most interesting ones!), is packed with mementos and astonishing items of all kinds. No more than two or three motorcycles leave his holy halls each year. During his modification projects, he focuses on only one bike at a time to be fully invested in the project. The flow and harmony as well as the Wabi-Sabi of Japanese aesthetics play a crucial role in this. The patina and the genuine character of the – mostly – old motorcycles are just as important to him as the essence of the future rider. After all, it’s the rider who completes the project. So it’s all the more exciting that this time Shinya has a brand-new R 18 in his workshop and the rider concerned is no less than he himself.</p> <p>Customized motorcycle. Not for sale. </p> <p> </p>
Travel.
Simply on the move – worldwide.
<p>Each adventure requires a courageous individual to get it underway – and a companion to accompany it.   </p>
Defined strength in a straight line
The R 18 Dragster by Roland Sands Design
<p>Roland Sands is known for his daring designs with racing influences. He combines styles and knows no limits. When modifying the R 18, he drew inspiration from his father’s drag racing days: He reduces the mighty cruiser to the essentials and gears it up for maximum speed on drag strips. The result is a straight-line dragster with an iconic boxer engine – the R 18 Dragster.</p>
A masterpiece made of titanium.
Revival Cycles is showcasing big boxer engines with the Birdcage.
<p>Alan Stulberg is a fan of boxer engines. He and his team have created a unique custom bike, living out his creative freedom, for a prototype two-cylinder boxer engine.

Total passion
R 18 Spirit of Passion by Kingston Custom
<p>&quot;This won’t be just any old, stunning PR bike. It will be one with a soul, a spirit.” In just a few words Dirk Oehlerking makes clear what he – and his modified R 18 – stand for. Kingston Custom bikes are always something very special. They have names such as White Phantom or Good Ghost. And that’s not the only reason they put the fear of God into some and make the hair on enthusiasts’ necks stand on end. Even Dirk himself is gripped by total passion each time he does as much as think about his projects. However, there was something else involved in the R 18 “mega project”: a responsibility like never before.</p>
R 18 Heritage Road
The Buffalo Soldiers MC
<p>The heritage of the BMW R 18 tracks back to some of BMW’s oldest motorcycles.
