Raising the bar: Vagabund gives the BMW R nineT a lift

We’ve always admired custom motorcycle workshops that keep pushing the boundaries. Austria’s Vagabund Moto have been doing good work since day one, but they’ve never rested on their laurels. The founding duo of Paul Brauchart and Philipp Rabl seems to level up on every build, relentlessly experimenting with new designs, materials and processes. Their 15th build pushes the envelope to the breaking point. It’s a 2016-model BMW R nineT with hand-formed metalwork, 3D-printed parts, and bodywork t...

Supreme Court sides with Germany: Immunity against Lawsuit for Taking Domestic Property

by Dennis Crouch The Supreme Court has issued a unanimous decision in the stolen-art case of Federal Republic of Germany v. Philipp. The claimants in the case are heirs to German Jewish art dealers who purchased a set of medieval Christian relics known as the Guelph Treasure (Welfenschatz) from the Duke of Brunswick in 1929 (although by then the Duke had already abdicated). As the Nazi government rose to power, the dealers were coerced to sell the collection back to the State (Prussia), allegedl...

Argument analysis: In Holocaust survivors’ lawsuit, justices probe history and limits of comity abstention

The first of two cases argued Monday, Republic of Hungary v. Simon, explored how courts should evaluate foreign-policy concerns in deciding whether to exercise jurisdiction over disputes involving foreign countries — and how much to defer to congressional choices in those decisions. Meanwhile, the potential ripple effects of the subsequently argued companion case, Federal Republic of Germany v. Philipp, loomed. Greg Silbert, for Hungary, and Sarah Harrington, for plaintiffs (Art Lien) Hung...

Monday round-up

The Supreme Court will hear five cases this week in what will be the court’s final oral arguments of 2020. In Monday’s session, the justices will hear two cases that were brought by Holocaust survivors and involve important issues of international law. The survivors — or their heirs — are seeking compensation for valuable art and other property that was seized by or sold to Germany and Hungary during the Holocaust. Federal Republic of Germany v. Philipp asks whether U.S. courts have jurisdiction...

Argument analysis: Many questions, few solutions on immunity in claims arising from Nazi-era art sale

The Supreme Court heard oral argument on Monday in a dispute over a collection of medieval Christian art on display at a Berlin museum. The question before the justices in Federal Republic of Germany v. Philipp is whether the lawsuit, filed in Washington, D.C., by the heirs of several German Jewish art dealers who allege that the art was sold to the Nazis under duress, can or should go forward at all. The justices had tough questions for both sides, and when the case concluded after nearly 90 mi...

Case preview: Foreign sovereign immunity, comity and the Holocaust

The Holocaust (in Hebrew Shoah, or “destruction”) comes to the Supreme Court on Monday. Republic of Hungary v. Simon and Federal Republic of Germany v. Philipp require the justices to decide whether classes of survivors can pursue claims in federal court seeking compensation from the European countries and related entities that took property from their Jewish citizens in the course of the genocide of six million Jews. Both cases ask whether federal courts can abstain from resolving such claims o...

Case preview: Justices to consider immunity for Germany in claims arising from Nazi-era art sale

It has been nearly 90 years since Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany, and 75 years since the end of World War II. Despite the passage of time, efforts to recover valuable works of art that were seized by the Nazis, or sold to them under duress, are still ongoing. On Monday, the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in one such dispute, Federal Republic of Germany v. Philipp, involving a collection of medieval relics now on display at a Berlin museum. Although the legal questions before the co...

Justices grant new cases, send Indiana abortion cases back for a new look

This morning the Supreme Court issued orders from the justices’ private conference yesterday. The justices granted five new cases, for a total of four additional hours of argument.

The remaining new cases, which are likely...

Relists Return

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. After a couple of weeks with no new relists, the Supreme Court is back this week with a vengeance. The court has scheduled an impromptu conference for Wednesday, July 1. In most years, an impromptu conference scheduled for the last week of June would be the mop-up conference for the entire term in which all outstanding business for the term is resolved. But the court still has enough outstanding opinions in argued cases that things may continue for a while y...

Sur-Ron custom: A Firefly built for Nike Air Max Day

It isn’t only regular Joes who keep the grinder sparks flying in custom workshops. A small but generous group of brands are also happy to commission bikes—because they’re a darn sight more interesting than most promotional vehicles or stunts. The German sportswear label and retailer BSTN is one of those farsighted brands, and this is the second custom they’ve commissioned from Philipp Wulk of Impuls. The base vehicle is a Sur-Ron Firefly: a popular and surprisingly powerful little scoot th...

Court will not fast-track ACA petitions

Today the Supreme Court issued orders from the justices’ private conference last week. The court added three new hours of argument to its calendar on Friday and were not expected to grant any new cases today, and they did not. But this morning’s order list nonetheless contained big news: The justices denied a motion to fast-track consideration of petitions filed by the U.S. House of Representatives and a group of blue states, asking the Supreme Court to weigh in on the constitutionality of the A...

This week we highlight petitions pending before the Supreme Court that address, among other things, whether a person can be “seized” under the Fourth Amendment when he is not confined to a particular space, in a case arising out of Officer Darren Wilson’s “move on” order to Dorian Johnson and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; and whether, in a case involving the mid-1930s purchase of artwork on behalf of a German state from a consortium of German Jews, an exception to the Foreign Sovereign Im...

A camouflaged BMW K1100 (with an e-bike to match)

Traditional cafe racers are typically designed with restraint high on the agenda. But we’re just as enthused by customs that trade reservedness for loudness—like this BMW K1100 with extremely sharp lines and a reflective livery. This left-field custom is the work of Impuls in Munich, Germany. And as we’ve seen from their previous work, the team of Philipp Wulk and Matthias Pittner don’t care much for tradition. They’ve embraced the K1100’s angular nature rather than trying to smooth every...

A fresh spin on the airhead BMW custom from Vagabund

Vagabund Moto have built some of the sharpest BMW airheads we’ve seen. They’ve developed a signature style too: custom boxers with stark, futuristic lines, and amazing attention to the tiniest of design details. But the Austrian builders Paul Brauchart and Philipp Rabl don’t want to be pigeonholed into one style. They’ve decided to change it up, since they often find themselves working with very similar donor bikes. “We try to not stand still in our designs,” says Paul. “If you mostly do B...

Icy Fresh: the Impuls x BSTN Ducati 916 ‘Concord’

If you’re a sneaker freak, you’ll know all about the Air Jordan XI Concord. Designed by Tinker Hatfield, it’s part of the legend that surrounds basketball player Michael Jordon—and it’s also the most popular model in the iconic Air Jordan range. Michael Jordan is a keen motorcyclist, and even backed a race team a few years ago. So it feels appropriate that the XI Concord has become the catalyst for a very striking new custom from Impuls of Germany. The idea came from the German sportswear ...

Kitchen of the Week: A DIY Ikea Country Kitchen for Two Berlin Creatives

When friends offered Nora Eisermann and Laura Muthesius the use of an apartment in a farm village just beyond Berlin, it came with a shared garden and a challenge: Set in an 1880s romantic ruin, the flat hadn’t been occupied for more than a decade and lacked a kitchen. The couple longed for a retreat from Berlin but couldn’t live on takeout: Nora is a food stylist and Laura is a food photographer. And since 2013, when Laura discovered her gluten and histamine intolerance, they’ve been cooking he...
