Boba Fett-the Cafe Racer.

If the Star Wars villian had this bike perhaps he would have learned to get along with others better..

This stunning Boba Fett inspired BMW comes via the bcsportbikes forum. Owner "Tattoodles" picks up the story;

"I took advantage of the winter down time to do some fun custom work to my bike- and I'm a huge Star Wars fan. I especially have a Boba Fett (great fansite here) fetish. I've never seen a bike painted up as a tribute to Star Wars before, so I thought I'd take a stab at it. The bike is painted to replicate Boba Fett's space ship Slave1.

The tank paint detail of Boba Fett's emblem from his armor chest plate ...

The quality of detail in the paint by Harald at Toxik design lab is absolutely incredible. There's small seems with highlights and lowlights, there's rust and oil stains, blaster marks, small logos from the movie, score marks and vents and louvers.

...The matching paint on the helmet visor's visibility isn't great but it's doable."

Why is this man smiling?- Boba Fett.
