Good Ghost is the third Phantom motorcycle designed by Dirk Oehlerking, which was built in the Kingston Custom workshop in Gelsenkirchen. An evolution of the design of the previous two Phantoms he created, named White Phantom and Black Phantom, the Ghost was developed on the request of a famous custom motorcycle investor and collector, Bobby Haas.

Haas specified to create it in grey color sporting the matching design but generating more speed compared to its other siblings. Therefore, instead of basing the Good Ghost on the BMW R80 (as was the case with the previous two Phantoms), he employed the 1980 BMW R100 RS and kept most of its chassis.

The Good Ghost is a marvel to look at, so imagine how much work has gone into its remarkable design. Dirk initiated by creating a structure with wire and tape and then hand-shaped it. He made his own fuel cell, placed the carbs inside the fairing, and installed K&N filters, custom intake manifolds, and stainless steel exhaust.

Up top is a tailored leather saddle, with upholstery covering the whole front, including a bespoke ‘dash.’ Flip it up to find a leather-lined cubbyhole to store a bottle of wine and a glass.

The Good Ghost will be a part of the Haas collection. Dirk says, “when you ride it, it feels like you are in a different time,” and he aspires to ride it at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, as well.

How do you turn it? Is the front articulated?
