Despite knowing there are some incredible things happening in the custom motorcycle scene in other parts of the world it can often be difficult to access them. One place I know has an incredible scene is Brazil, but despite this I've featured very few builds from that part of the planet. Thankfully the internet is continuing to offer up ways of overcoming language and location barriers and awesome builds like this custom R Nine T are finding their way onto the site. This BMW aptly named 'Brown' is the work of Ricardo Medrano who manages Johnnie Wash workshop in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The bike is part of a custom series produced to meet the growing demand for custom bikes in Sao Paulo and it's one of the best R Nine T builds I've seen so far.
The Johnnie Wash R Nine T series features 3 different models of which the Brown is the most extensively modified. With all 3 versions Ricardo has avoided frame modifications that require welding or cutting and has left the wiring unmodified so the bikes can be returned to their stock factory setup. Standard modifications made to all of the bikes in the series include LED lighting, decluttered subframes, custom seats, paint and anodised finishes. The Brown differs from its siblings in both styling and power and is in both instances the most aggressive of the trio.
