I løpet av høsten 2017 kjørte BMW en intern byggekonkurranse for alle autoriserte BMW-forhandlere. Temaet for konkurransen var å sette et personlig preg på kreasjonen, slik en bråte med motorsyklister har gjort gjennom hele MC-historien. Alt fra å sette klistremerker til å bytte ut deler er en del av customisering-arven.
Alle byggene hadde en BMW standard R nineT som utgangspunkt, og under presenteres noen av de norske bidragene. Vi får alle mulighet til å se byggene med egne øyne på Vårmønstringen på parkeringsplassen til Norges varemesse i Lillestrøm 5. og 6. mai.

Name of the bike: Black&Gold
Story behind: The goal was to build a «clean» but great looking bike. Our plan was that it should be easy to get a hold of parts, and show customers/owners of a R9T that it should not be hard to make a personal touch on their bike either. Parts are bought from BMW Motorrad, Werks USA, Tail Tidy andpaintjob is done by Bilskadesenteret Tromsø.
Name of the bike: Panzer
Builders: Arne, Markus, Marek, and Jotz
Story behind: Aimed to build a discreet cafe racer by using exclusive parts from BMW, Rizoma, Øhlins and MIIV. Everything that have been used on this build can be bought through Ride Bergen.
Name of the bike: Concept 91
Builders: Everyone at the dealer have contributed, but the main work is done by Bjørn and Thore.
Story behind: Wanted to build a dirt track custom that differs from the regular R9T. Parts used are bought from BMW Motorrad, Øhlins, Rapid-Bike, and the rest is produced at the workshop and with good partners locally.
Name of the bike: R35R
Story behind: This is a hommage to BMW Motorrad and a celebration to the dealer that have been in business for 35 years.

Name of the bike: R9T 95 Golden Edition
Builders: Teamwork (all was a part of the planing including customers – while Yngve and Lars did hard work)
Story behind: The idea to bike are based on the Scittish Six days Trail from the 1960’s, but with some modifications during the build. We wanted to enhance the black/gold and aluminium throughout the build, since this promotes the base design of the bike. Parts are bought form BMW Motorrad, Wunderlich, and Remus.
Name of the bike: MTRacer
Builders: Chriss, Jon Kevin and Jon Erik
Story behind: We wanted to build a great looking cafe racer in such a way that we can offer the same sort of modification to our customers later on. We have used parts from BMW, Rizoma, Kellermann, Jekillandhyde, and ARP Racing.
MC HUSET NYDAL:

Name of the bike: R9T Black Edition

Story behind: Wanted to build a «clean» bike, since we think less is more – and it brings out the great look of the bike. Parts used are mainly from BMW Motorrad and Rizoma.
Name of the bike: «Beast»
Builders: Everyone at Jakhelln MC have participated, but most of the work was done by Stephan and Christian.
