BMW boxer scrambler by Crooked Motorcycles
Running a custom motorcycle workshop isn’t an easy racket, so we applaud anyone who can pull it off. Germany’s Crooked Motorcycles clearly has the right stuff; this woodsy BMW boxer scrambler is their 50th release.

Nicknamed ‘The Pathfinder,’ the bike has a special place in Crooked’s heart for more than one reason. Not only does it mark a half-century of builds for the shop, but it was commissioned by a returning customer who already had two Crooked motorcycles in his garage. So the crew felt motivated to do the 1980-model BMW R100 justice.

It also wasn’t lost on them that custom BMW boxers are a dime a dozen. Their customer wanted a svelte scrambler that was rugged and sporty—something that would stand out, but still cut a neat silhouette. “A challenge in a very oversaturated BMW market,” quips Crooked’s co-founder, Dominikus Braun.

For Dominikus, it boiled down to creating “a mix between a fun machine and an art project.” That meant building a bike that their client would enjoy riding, but also using it as a canvas to celebrate their success.

Speed Read: A Fantic Caballero scrambler with vintage style, and more

latest motorcycle news 175 745x497 1 jpg

The latest motorcycle gadgets, classics, and custom bikes.
Deus ex Machina leads this week’s round-up, with a Fantic Caballero scrambler that tips its hat to the Fantic enduros of the 70s. We also profile Beeline’s new motorcycle navigation device, a rare 1990s Harley-Davidson military bike, and a stunning Triumph Trident T150 Gene Romero replica.

Fantic Caballero 500 by Deus ex Machina Milan With its upright riding position, scrambler styling, and punchy 449 cc single-cylinder engine, it’s a mystery why the Fantic Caballero 500 isn’t more popular. The Italian company started making motorcycles in 1968, including enduros, mini-bikes, and go-karts. The original Caballero was an enduro bike—a 50 cc two-stroke with a bright red tank, yellow number boards, and chunky off-road wheels and tires.

Lot #1331 – 1971 Plymouth HEMI Cuda – NO RESERVE

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ‒ December 21, 2023 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will offer the Frank Tiegs Collection, which includes some of the most significant 1960s and 1970s American muscle cars, at the 2024 Scottsdale Auction held January 20-28 at WestWorld of Scottsdale. Twenty-eight vehicles from the collection will cross the auction block with No Reserve during the nine-day event, including rare and desirable examples across the Ford, Mercury, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Dodge and Plymouth marques.

Lot #1330 – 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 – NO RESERVE

“The Frank Tiegs Collection is a remarkable offering with a number of highly collectible vehicles from the golden age of American muscle cars, each in stunning condition,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s not only the diversity, but the rarity of the vehicles, that makes this a standout collection. Many of them, like the several HEMI’s in the collection, including the 1971 Plymouth HEMI ’Cuda (Lot #1331) and the 1971 Dodge HEMI Challenger (Lot #1103.2), were limited production and meticulously restored to their original specs.

A 1970 Plymouth HEMI Superbird (Lot #1331.1) featured in the collection is powered by its original matching numbers 426/425hp HEMI engine with dual 4-barrel carburetors, paired with the original 727 TorqueFlite automatic and the original A36 performance axle package. Refinished in the original Alpine White exterior, this HEMI is accompanied by the Fender Tag decoding, Registry Certificate, original owner’s manual, owner history and the visual report by Mopar authority Dave Wise.

Two Ford Mustang Boss 429s are among the most coveted in the Tiegs Collection including a Black Jade 1969 Boss 429 (Lot #1332) equipped with its matching-numbers engine and rear end as well as a 1970 Boss 429 (Lot #1330) that is one of only 43 of the 500 custom-built models painted in Grabber Green. An original 1967 Shelby GT500 (Lot #1332.1) is also being offered with No Reserve. It is powered by a 428ci V8 Police Interceptor engine paired with a matching-numbers 4-speed manual transmission and Traction-Lok rear end. Finished in Dark Moss Green, this GT500 is one of only 64 produced in this paint and trim package.

Lot #1332.1 – 1967 Shelby GT500 – NO RESERVE

“The Frank Tiegs Collection will be one of our most talked about and sought-after offerings in Scottsdale,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “These vehicles not only represent some of the best examples in vintage muscle cars but are chance to own a special piece of our American heritage.”

General Motors is also well-represented in the Frank Tiegs Collection featuring a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko COPO (Lot #1330.1) that is one of just three Camaros personally sold by Don Yenko for use in NHRA Drag Racing programs. It is powered by its L72 427/425hp engine and features Don Yenko’s name on the documentation, which includes the dealer package file. Also representing Chevrolet in the offering from the Frank Tiegs Collection is a 1969 Chevelle COPO (Lot #1329.1) and a 1970 Chevelle SS LS6 (Lot #1329) finished in Cranberry Red over a matching medium red vinyl bucket seat interior.

Another General Motors vehicle from the collection is a 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air III (Lot #1031) famously known as the “Psychedelic Judge.” Finished in Mint Turquoise, this GTO boasts a distinctive exterior adorned with factory Judge decals in blue, orange and pink, and is paired with a red bucket-seat interior. What makes this car truly unique is its deviation from the standard color combo for a factory WT1 Judge option. Classified as one of 75 GTO Judges finished in Mint Turquoise in 1970, it stands out as an accidental one-of-one with the red interior as the Mint Turquoise GTOs were intended to feature black or Sandalwood interiors.

Lot #1330.1 – 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko COPO

The Frank Tiegs Collection also features these highly coveted American muscle cars:

1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS LS6 (Lot #993.1)1969 Mercury Cougar (Lot #1031.1)1970 Dodge Challenger R/T (Lot #1104.1)1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS (Lot #1104.2)1970 Plymouth HEMI ’Cuda (Lot #1327)1964 Ford Thunderbolt (Lot #1327.1)1968 Shelby GT500 KR (Lot #1328)1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 “Demolition Man” (Lot #1328.1)1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (Lot #1332.2)
