Copper gives anything an heirloom feel, lending the object it covers a look that suggests it’s been around the block. That’s just what happened with this BMW R100 R Mystic after Vincent Degano got his hands on it. Degano stripped the bike, cleaned up the most important components, and then made some modifications. The most notable of those modifications being the faux copper finish that won’t oxidize like normal copper. That means this lean, mean machine will look just as beautiful in 10 years. The forks and shocks received a custom copper powder coating that makes them appear a bit different than the rest of the copper on the build. The result is an eye-catching bike that looks completely unique.
