Dailies, Galleries -


This morning we showed you Much Much Go, the winner of Deus Ex Machina’s Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build-Off, now, here’s all the other entries and entrants.

Describing the Build-Off, Deus says, “It’s time to close your eyes and imagine a happy place, a place without boundaries where old American iron crossbreeds with 80s Japanese sport monsters. Where a rigid rear XR600 is a perfectly good idea and we really can’t think why Honda didn’t do it in the first place. The Deus Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off is is a contest of creativity and resourcefulness: the victor will have spent the least and created the most original bike, from ingots of 18 carat enthusiasm.”

“Open to all-comers, the bikes were paraded and judged on the 27th of November at Deus in Camperdown by an esteemed crew of judges from the four corners of the motorcyclism universe. No rules other than it had be done as cheaply as possible, it had to run (start and idle) and roll.”

Here’s 34 photos of cheap creativity.

    Great photos! What’s that bike in pic no.31? Looks pretty interesting.

    Hmm… One of these is not like the others. That last photo appears to be a mostly stock sport classic.

    Cool idea. But done as cheaply as possible? From what I understand getting some work done over at DEUS is FAR from cheap!
