Aircraft Inspired Custom BMW R nineT by FabMan Creations



This aircraft-inspired BMW R nineT is the work of Wayne Buys, who works out of his home garage as FabMan Creations. It’s shrouded in aluminum bodywork that Wayne built by hand, using a homemade English wheel. It’s probably also worth noting that he worked freeform, without a single sketch, render or template – and that his metal-shaping skills are self-taught.

This R nineT was commissioned by a client, who supplied a low-mileage R nineT and specified the aeronautical theme.
