Bespoke motorcycle workshop Death Machines of London has done it again by creating a one-off Bladerunner-style custom motorcycle worthy of its own sci-fi feature: the Kenzo — named after Kenzo Tada, the first Asian competitor at the Isle of Man TT back in 1930.
Based on an old 1977 Honda Gold Wing GL1000, every part of its upgrades have been painstakingly thought out by DMOL. Inspired by the overlapping armor worn by ancient Japanese samurai, the custom bike was built with a whole variety of processes ranging from the traditional, such as using an English wheel and sowing machine for its leatherwork, to the modern and futuristic, such as CNC and 3D printing for its sleek body panels. The bike is then kitted out with a variety of bespoke gadgets such as LED light strips for its front, tail, and indicator lights, as well as a hand-crafter speedometer featuring a dragon that was cast from an 18th-century Japanese jewel box.
For the motorcycle enthusiasts out there, Death Machines of London’s custom 1,000CC Kenzo motorcycle will soon be available for $75,000 USD. Those hoping to purchase this one-off creation can head over to the company’s website to learn more.
Elsewhere in the automotive world, Dubai’s police department will soon be patrolling in a Tesla Cybertruck.
