Looking like a cross between something you’d find in a museum and something you’d find in the Batcave, this custom-made 1930 KJ Henderson Custom is the pride and joy of one Frank Westfall of Syracuse, NY. Underneath all that homespun bodywork is an inline-4 air-cooled engine, though reportedly it’s a little tough to handle. No matter, because really, the less time this beauty has to spend near careless drivers the better. Among the changes Frank made were taking the bike’s original two-tone color scheme and instead going all black. It was first unveiled at the Rhinebeck Grand National Meet in 2010, and the ooh-and-ahh reverberations are still being felt.

BMW Concept 90

In celebration of 90 years of BMW Motorrad along with 40 years of the iconic R 90 S, BMW chose the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2013 as the stage to unveil its modernized version of the classic motorcycle — the BMW Concept 90. Teaming up with Roland Sands Design ‘RSD,’ the Concept 90 pays homage to BMW’s bike of the ’70s, most noticeably with the use of the original Daytona Orange paint. The Concept 90 further translates the essence of the R 90 S in the faring, fuel tank and rear portions of the updated bike. To rejuvenate the bike’s design, halogen lighting was swapped with a BMW LED headlamp and a plethora of customs parts were crafted for the project.
