StoryWe started the design of this bike from the rear end: we had decided to clean up the rear fender, so we brought in our signature handmade (englishwheeled!) aluminum fender. To that we attached a gem: the brakelight was turned in a lathe and designed with polished fins to recall those of the engine.
Next we chopped the subframe to let the new fender take place, we had a custom seat made with an extra bump on the rear and a comfy gel pack for the front. From there we went on to raise the rear about 1" by longer shocks, and that was the finishing touch for the rear end.
but we didn't stop there.
Up next were the side panels, and all you need is a sleek steel mesh to peek through with some geometric cuts. Easy, no?
The rest is history, pumped up the front end with a beautiful headlight with yellow lens and bespoke guard for it. Low-rise bars, some hand-wound leather grips, minimal front fender (that WAS a bitch to reinforce underneath, so the actual structure is not the fender itself), and bam.
Ready to take the lady out on a midnight blaze through the Istanbul tunnels.
