The South Paw Custom Motorcycle By Deus Ex Machina

View all 14 Photos

More than just a beautiful bike, South Paw illustrates the dedication, ingenuity and creativity that characterize many custom motorcycle workshops. Completed by Deus Ex Machina, the custom project is based on a Honda VTR250, a model rarely used in the industry mainly because of an oversized airbox and trellis frame. But Matthew Roberts from Deus Ex Machina’s Tokyo workshop saw the unexplored potential. He chose the unbeaten path to create the final result. A bike inspired by modern day flat track bikes as well as by “1970s Champion style tracker fuel tanks and seat units.”

To remake the back of the motorcycle, the team shaped the body by hand and formed it using a carbon fiber, epoxy and woven glass composite. The new cantilevered fuel cell adds a distinctive feature to the build. A hand-formed alloy pan for the seat and graphite upholstery with contrasting stitching that complements the bright stripes complete the eye-catching design. South Paw also features a new braking system, 17-inch Excel alloy racing rims, an LED headlight with a rugged, hand-formed aluminum surround, as well as Metzeler Sportec M7 RR tires.
