"When I accepted this challenge, I didn't make many modifications because the bike was already very beautiful and perfect," said Dirk Oehlerking. Indeed, he did not made much changes over the BMW R18 motorcycle. Especially in the chassis and body of the motorcycle.

The Kingston Custom typical fairing appearance is indeed close related with the art deco style. In order to give the BMW typical touches, Dirk Oehlerking installed the BMW typical kidney grille on the large-sized fairing in the front. An the end, the color choice of black makes a perfect blend between the shape of the motorcycle and the new fairing.

Another part that changed was the muffler. In this BMW R18 motorcycle modification project, Dirk Oehlerking uses his signature muffler to keep it in sync with the new big-sized fairing. In terms of design, the BMW R18, entitled 'Spirit of Passion' by Dirk Oehlerking is not too drastic compared to the modifications made by Roland Sands and Bernhard Naumann.
