If at any point in your life you doubted the co-existence of a watchmaker/motorcycle brand partnership, there will be no shortage in ways Harley-Davidson and Bell & Ross will show you just how ridiculous you are in your skepticism.

Back in 2011, the iconic American motorcycle brand and the American watchmaker have collaborated in turning a Harley-Davidson FXSTB Softail Nightrain into a creative mash-up that features a Bell & Ross BR 01 Carbon watch installed in the handcrafted center console using a machined section of aluminum.

The special edition bike, which was overseen by Shaw Speed & Custom, the leading Harley-Davidson dealership in the UK has earned the most prestigious title of being the best UK dealer 6-times, is a one-off edition that has been christened as the "Nascafe Racer".

In building the bike, Shaw stripped the Harley back to its bare ‘n bones state before implanting the B&R watch into the center console. The motorcycle has been stripped down to even diminutive details including nuts and bolts. The Shaw Speed as well as Custom Speed mounted a Bell & Ross BR 01 Carbon timepiece in a handmade center console with the help of a machined section of aluminum.
