When British Customs and CROIG decide to collaborate for charity, one expects stunning results and Furiosa certainly doesn’t disappoint. Inspired by the main female character from Mad Max: Fury Road, the bike maintains the cool, post-apocalyptic concept of the movie’s vehicle designs, including leather accents and laser-cut metal details. The project was created in support of Riders For Health, a charity that provides efficient medical aid transportation solutions throughout Africa, helping health workers reach up to 21.5 millions of people. Anyone donating to the cause was entered in a contest to win the bike. But first, the prize had to be completed and the process was taken to the finish line by a team of people. The initial sketches were completed by industrial designer and illustrator Jeremy Lacy and were voted by the CROIG community, with the winning concept then taken to the next step. The base is a 2015 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle, enhanced through the British Customs Weekend Projects system which allows users to easily customize bikes using basic tools and upgrade packages featuring factory-spec bolt-on parts. Andrew Blaschko, co-founder of Cafe Racers of Instagram, took on this step and documented the entire process which lasted six weekends. He also made custom, one-off parts to add the perfect finishing touches and to lend the bike the ‘Mad Max’ look. Furiosa can handle a wide range of terrains and features a drag pipe full exhaust system, leather tank pads and wraps, a high-performance lighting system, hand guards, an oil pressure gauge with an industrial design, ammo cans, a golden chain, and a few other items donated by various companies. The motorcycle made its debut at The One Moto Show in Portland, Oregon and it will soon go to a lucky owner, somewhere in California. Photography by Death of Stock and Roy Son.
