BikeEXIF's Magnificent Photos Of A Custom Ducati 350

BikeEXIF's Magnificent Photos Of A Custom Ducati 350 I swear BikeEXIF could make any bike look super tasty. I’ll say it out loud: I love scramblers. Love them. I don’t own one yet and I might never, but just like the 1:18 model of an MH900e that lives on my desk, I can absolutely appreciate the aesthetic and a bit of longing without having one to ride. Here’s another reason I also love BikeEXIF: they take stunning pictures of gorgeous, mostly custom motorcycles that I could probably never own even if I wanted to. But I can enjoy the pictures, and you can too.

BikeEXIF keeps coming through with gorgeous photography of skillful custom builds but now, they grant us a whole new flavor of unique electric art. Since Zero commissioned the build, it did not want the frame or the motor altered at all. That meant a chopper was out of the question, but a modern

Custom bikes don't have to be all welded metal to be pretty.

OK, I’ll admit it. I have a serious soft spot for well-crafted custom motorcycles. Generally, though, the bones of custom bikes you see were born in the 70s or 80s all low-tech and metal, carburetors and steel frames. A custom electric is a bit of a shock, if you will, but the more I think about it the more I should not be surprised. Motorcycle customization as an art form has been around since motorcycles have been around, so creating unique artwork out of an electric bike is just the natural progression of the craft.

The future is here:

The Icon 1000 Tasty Butterscotch Suzuki Bandit

The Icon 1000 Tasty Butterscotch Suzuki Bandit The builds that turn an unsung, uninteresting bike into a real head-turner are the best builds. The builders at Icon 1000 rarely let me down, and paired with BikeEXIF's photography, well. Folks, meet Colonel Butterscotch. A ridiculous name for a really gorgeous motorcycle. Everyone who has ever had a Suzuki Bandit will tell you, they are lovely, straightforward, no-frills, eager and very obedient motorcycles. I don’t know how Suzuki did it, but every Bandit I’ve ever ridden (when it was in good fettle) was just so obedient. They do what you want them to do, and they do not do what you do not want them to do.

Instead of a welder, a dead-blow hammer and an English wheel, the folks at Huge Moto in San Francisco started this Zero FXS build with CAD files from Zero. And what they’ve come up with a gem. Instead of the boxy visual stumbling blocks and wide blank expanses that grace so many current electric motorcycle designs, this one manages to be swoopy with clean, continuous, beautiful lines while keeping its minimalist roots. Huge Moto machined the pieces of this build not out of steel and aluminum but ABS plastic, keeping its weight down, its materials modern, and the entire thing beautiful and interesting.

Since Zero commissioned the build, it did not want the frame or the motor altered at all. That meant a chopper was out of the question, but a modern custom build often means more functionality not less. The San Francisco shop upgraded the rear end with a Fox racing shock, and pulled both wheels in favor of custom-laced Sun rims. No word on fork internals but dollars to doughnuts those were gutted too, in favor of upgrades or emulators.

Custom Triumph Bonneville

Custom Triumph Bonneville It's not flashy but that's kind of the idea. When you want your bike customized by professionals, your first step is to find a shop whose aesthetic you love. Every builder has their own eye for art, and what is a custom motorcycle build but a mechanical, rolling piece of art? Otherwise, why would any of us bother?

Ever since showing us the FTR 1200 Custom last year, the internet has been abuzz with rumors and anticipation about this completely new and different kind of Indian. BikeEXIF ' s Gorgeous Custom Zero Pictures Give Us Hope . RideApart.

The Zero FXS comes in two flavors, one of which goes 50 miles on a charge, and the other 100. The larger capacity bike starts around $10K. Stock, even the bike with the bigger battery doesn’t top 300 lbs curb weight, and the mods on this custom build no doubt bring that number down some. Here we go loving BikeEXIF even more, for sharing this with us. What a gorgeous little package of hope for the future!
