The first Deus Ex Machina custom motorcycle has gone on sale in New York. Located at Smith + Butler in Brooklyn, the W650 street tracker is identical to the bike pictured above, with the addition of removable surfboard holders.

Sydney, Australia-based Deus has become known for its back-to-basics,
small-capacity customs that focus on delivering classic kick-start
function over the metal-flake and chrome comic book form of mainstream
customs popularized by such cultural luminaries as Jesse James or the
Teutel family.



The humble W650 has been extensively modified with rebuilt front forks,
a dinky headlight, huge handlebars, WM Racing alloy tank, a flat track
seat unit, an OVER Racing 2-to-1 exhaust, an IKON rear shock, a custom
speedo mount, drilled bevel cover, a filter pod conversion and a
Richard Petty-inspired paint job. That doesn't sound like a lot, but
the result is transformative. I went and sat on the bike yesterday and
it feels really, really special. We'll be riding it in the coming
weeks.



Along with the $19,500 tracker, S+B is also exhibiting part of Dustin Humphrey's Lovers' Land photo project.
