The valve covers and kickstand may be from an R1200R. The rest ...

It is a complete R1200 driverain, modified frame for a conventional USD fork set, HD tank (most likely), and bobbed frame.

Not my cuppa, but looks well done.

The fuel tank, if an actual BMW tank looks to from a pre-1955 single.

Tires are Avon Distanzia. Great tires IMHO . They stick, last a long time and have a rugged look. What's not to love ?

Shit, I thought they were a set of period Wehrmacht tires pulled off a BMW shot dead on it's way to Stalingrad.

Did the single have the compartment on top. I was guessing the 6 gallon /2 tank.

They are dual sport tires, good ones, but don't stick as well as pure pavement tires. And that bike seems very unlikely to ever see dirt?

Excellent tires, great in all weather, and stick like glue. I haven't rund a set of tires short of super stickey Pilot Power that stuck as well. For the look, that was a great choice!

It would if I owned it.

It's crude looking, obnoxious, and loud. Everything a motorcycle should be.

It's beastly and antisocial, in the way that Harleys want to be but aren't. Coolest bike I've seen in a long, long time.
