That’s what you call cre­ative think­ing

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
