Miami-based custom bike specialists Nmoto have a soft spot for Art Nouveau and 1930’s vehicles. The latest work from the Nmoto garage is a conversion kit for the BMW scooter C 400 X, which transforms it into a voluminous retro-futuristic vehicle. This is inspired by a little-known custom bike from 1936, according to Nmoto.
The shell of the modern scooter consists of nine carbon parts, subframes for the front and rear, BMW kidney grille, exhaust tailpipe, headlights, indicators and side mirrors. Original BMW tools can be used for assembly. What is missing is a new saddle – the buyer has to organize that as well. However, the conversion of the everyday scooter into a streamlined vehicle is very expensive: The kit costs a good 12,000 francs, around a third more than the basic vehicle. There are also freight and conversion costs.
