Help ... can anyone identify these bikes

Help ... can anyone identify these bikes. 

Yesterday came across these "murals" decorations in a game centre at Walmer Park, PE, and just had to take a quick cell phone photo.

IMHO very an interesting representation of some D/S bike - not quite sure which one, hence the post here.   BMW, MWB, or WBM, I just do not know!
 
The art work do these icons of the motorcycling world justice - such vibrant colours, deep contrast patterns, and depth.  I mean just check those rims ... the chromatically enhanced seat  ...  still trying to find the xhaust system ... but, never mind, all I can say is WOW!




PS Which place is CD

Exhast looks like it is underneath the seat.

But I do not know which side the driveshaft/chain is sitting.

Exellent pics.   :thumleft:

Looks like an R1150R Rockster to me, except for the underseat pipes.

This is not life or death. It is an internet forum.

Yup, CD was the old King Williams town registration before the new EC plates.
