This Beautiful BMW R65 Art Bike Deserves A Spot In A Museum
By now you're all pretty familiar with the BMW art cars from Warhol, Calder, Koons, and a whole range of other artists. But a BMW art bike? Well now you really have our attention. In collaboration with artists AAAFresh, Dutch tuners Nozem created a BMW art bike fit for the Guggenheim. AAAFresh—the artists in question—are composed of three Rotterdam-based painters; Maikel Kleinjan, Roderick Faassen, and Hans Kleinjan. The trio used their unique style to transform the already pretty BMW R65 into a literal work of art. But it didn’t just stop at a fancy paint job.

After the paint dried on the gas tank and fender (or probably before), the bike was handed over to the boys at Nozem, where they gave it their own custom artistic flair. Though, they were a little more subtle with their improvements.
The shop fitted a new seatpan and leather upholstery, clean and looped rearframe, taillights, headlights, footpegs, fenders, a Porsche headlight—pretty much everything but the kitchen sink. All covered in satin black to make that custom paint pop even more.

The bike was unveiled to the art world earlier in the year at the AAAFresh gallery, but actually hasn’t found a new owner yet. No word on price, but expect to pay a pretty penny for this rolling museum piece.
