Ladies and genitals, dust off your Whitworths and recalibrate your King Dongs in readiness. 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.
Deus Ex Machina has established 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 will be paraded and judged on the 27th of November at Deus in Camper-down by an esteemed crew of judges from the four corners of the motorcyclism universe. No rules other than it should be done as cheaply as possible, it must run (start and idle) and roll. No points will be awarded for excessive expense. Participants should be prepared to document their builds as a book is planned of all the entries from concept sketch to rolling masterpiece.
