That’s what you call creative thinking
Deus announce bike build-off winners at this year’s biggest motorcycle show
Builder Eugenio Vezzetti Bike Oracolo, based on a 1986 750CC Dnepr mt11
The Oracle leaves a raw and lasting impression. It’s based on a Russian Dnepr and has been re-worked into this simple-looking but effective custom by Italian builder Eugenio Vezzetti. The bike centres around the hand-fabricated brass tank and seat that was previously an engine mount for a Honda XT125.
Builder Davide Lorusso Bike Ula, based on a 1991 Honda XR600
There’s thinking outside of the box and then there’s this. Lorusso’s Ula proves that anything is achievable with a little imagination. His XR600 is made from odd household bits and stuff lying around in the shed. The fuel tank is easily the most striking feature, fashioned from two PVC pipes.
Builder Ken Ritsuno Bike Original
Ritsuno’s bike is based on early Harleys, but the rest is a mashup of components. A US agricultural motor that is started by a rip-cord has been turned on its end and is the star of the build. The front end
is from a bicycle.
A blend of odds and ends but somehow it works
Rusty looks create rustic charm
