Personalized Eye Candy: ‘The Forager’

You know when you try an apple and head for the heart, and you keep telling yourself “a little more on that side, a little more on the other side…” and the list goes on until what have you hitting the center?

That’s the vibe we get from a recent build by Deus Ex Machina’s Jeremy Tagand, who tackled this Robb Report states was initially going to be a very simple bare construction.

Did it stay simple? Surely not.

Are we drooling over the results?

Absolutely.

“I saw the potential for customization quite early on and had that in mind when I bought the bike,” reminds bike owner Ty on the shop website.

“Honestly, I couldn’t be happier! I think the work that Jeremy has done really relates to my vision of the bike.

The donor bike for the project was a very nice Yamaha XSR700, showing some retro styling and rarin’ for a little upgrade in the color/lighting departments.

The final result ?

A classic forest green scheme (kept from the original bike and also inspired by Jack Brabham’s BT19 as well as the “Arrows A2 F1 car”), adorned with Biltwell motorcycle bars, Daytona Velona clock, buttons and Moto Gadget grips, a very nice specially designed moto black box and a beautiful pair of hand polished Alpina Raggi spokes, coated with Pirelli MT60RS rubbers.

Deus Ex Machina has always changed the lighting of the bike via Kellermann Atto indicators and LEDs for the rear – but now the bright bits roll on a trimmed subframe, which sports a new brushed alloy rear fender, while the JVB fork gaiters show off the SW – Motech alloy faceplate.

In short, the Deus team did their homework and more – and we’re thrilled with the results.
