This BMW k101 Impuls Custom Build Pits Two Artists against Each Other

Phillipp Wulk and Matthis Pittner have partnered with artists Fabian Gatermann and Matthias Edlinger on an impressive custom bike—the BMW k101 Impuls. Gatermann’s role in the project was to scan the motorcycle in 3D and then design a new gas tank and seat. He did so, modifying the structure as well, and then creating a design for the gas tank and seat using a series of polygons. Edlinger approached the bike more like a canvas, decorating it in his own unique style.

The design was then handmade. That’s where Philipp Wulk and Matthias Pittner took over. The team took BMW’s k100 as a base and then created two different motorcycles. Both bikes are somewhere between a café racer and a scrambler. BMW’s standard cowl and fenders were ditched and replaced with a slimmer look. A custom exhaust was also created, while a plethora of Motogadget componentry was added.
