Jens Henkel is having the unveiling of his custom built bike, A motorcycle built over the skeleton of a BMW G650 X Challenge. Happening this Saturday.

I have copied the links from The FB event and the teaser.

"To all with a love for two wheels. Whether it be a sport bike, Harley, enduro, scooter, it does not matter. Please join me for the unveiling of Octavia.
For more information please visit:
www.hydedesigned.com

If you are on a bike, bring her.
If arriving on a bike, there is a slipway on 4th Avenue with a ramp. Please ride up and park in the amphitheatre in front of the venue.
Hope to see you there!
ALL WELCOME!

Saw this a while ago, got some stuff from Jens for the ol XChllenge and we spoke about this., but decided to keep mum till he reveals it.

Seriously awesome in my opinion. Real talent.

Here are some pics from the night! Not nearly as good as Teebags pics, but you get the idea.

I met Jens in early 2015 buying some parts from his bike for mine, (after I had a small crash off-road) he was kind enough to to invite me to the unveiling!

Cannot wait to see what #hydedesigns are going to produce in the future.

Looks like a backyard cafe racer attempt gone wrong.

What is does manage is making the standard 650x look really good.

Little bit like unveiling your new ugly mother in law.

Just my opinion of course.

So long as there are motorbikes some guys will customise them. Some creations are practical, some beautiful, and some outlandish...............

I don't know, for me the jury is still out.

Maybe this would be better off in "garage projects" where people are more accustomed to bikes being worked on and sometimes even modified  :pot:
