Like many other companies in the world of high-end watches, Bell & Ross extend their sense for design to other spheres. Now, Bell & Ross watches and Shaw Harley-Davidson, the current world champions in modified Harley-Davidson motorcycles have collaborated to create the Bell & Ross-inspired Nascafe Racer.
The bike is based on the Harley-Davidson FXSTB Softail Nightrain, one of the more radical Softails – long, low and naked and named by Willie G. Davidson. The motorcycle was totally stripped down to every last nut and bolt in the Speed & Custom workshop of the East Sussex dealership, and every detail was taken into account on the rebuild. Using the BR 01 Carbon – the iconic instrument produced by Bell & Ross – the Shaw Speed and Custom team mounted the timepiece in a handcrafted centre console using a machined section of aluminium. The watch mounting positioned the timepiece in a perfect place for its original function as a professional tool for the rider. A combination of anodised blue, carbon and stealth-like matt black custom paint was used on the bike to reflect the timepiece.
