There is something about a beautiful bike that makes every man sigh, Deus Ex Machina, Centralized in Venice, Ca, is a one stop shop for all of your custom motorcycle, surf, and caffeine needs (Featured soon). This custom BMW R100s is one of the most rugged, badass bikes I have ever encountered. Popular in the late 1970’s this bike with a wide tank, cafe racer style, is meant to quickly get you from A to B. With its polished chrome and slide attributes Deus has truly mastered the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance . I’d be curious to put off road tires and see how this thing could do on a dirt trail with blue skies, and open roads.
