When it comes to customizing bikes, the platform you start with is almost as important as the work that goes into it and the creator’s vision for what the bike can become. The BMW R-series motorcycles from a few decades ago are a popular starting point because of features like the flat-twin airhead engine and the single-side swingarm. Rather than the commando style or apocalypse motorcycle style we normally see, Barbara Custom Motorcycles out of Paris decided to make their BMW R80 Black Mamba Concept bike something straight out of a race circuit in the future. The only downside to their gorgeous rendition is that the black on black on black cafe racer or brat style bike exists only in images at this point. We’re hoping at some point in the future we’ll actually see the concept on the street.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
