This extended slumber was rudely ended when we decided to ship the chassis and engine, along with other original parts sourced in the USA. to Italy.
Once it landed at the Deus Workshop Milano our mechanics added some elbow grease and expertise to create this stunning race bike.
A chromoly Ron Wood Racing frame and a Rotax motor is the basis of the quintessential flat track bike, but only the basis. We upgraded the Grimeca brakes with a custom-made Discacciati system.
The seat and tank come from Redmax UK and those radical, vintage alloy wheels are from Californian specialists, Performance Machine. We asked our TFX Suspension friends in the Netherlands to build track-specific shock absorbers to enhance performance and maximize traction. They combine with the R6 front forks, which were prepared by Oram.
An electric starter makes everything easier on race day.
One of the more exciting parts is the sound of this machine: DBR custom built the exhaust combined with USA racing sourced silencer.
The bike is racing in the @deustandfun Cup, where Deus Milano's own Marco is battling in the Thunderbike class. Check the dates and join us at the the races. The bike also features in Sideburn 54 - available from Deus Milano.
