Deus Ex Machina Goof Bike is Ready for Fun

Most custom motorbikes are built to look mean and tough—even sinister. Deus Ex Machina, out of Australia, took the opposite approach, going for borderline irreverent and a whole lot of fun.

The Goof Bike started out its life as a Suzuki RV90, but its real identity was revealed by artist Paul McNeil and Deux Ex Machina’s mechanic Jeremy “Frenchy” Tagand. McNeil channelled the fun summers of the ‘60s and gave the bike an airbrush style red, white, and blue paint job. A bubble helmet received a similar treatment.

The bike itself was stripped down to just the essentials, but then had a surfboard rack added to it, which serves to not only transport your board, but to also provide a bit of shade. Fat, knobby tires were added to take on the sandy dunes of the beach. Ape hanger bars replaced the original handlebars. The surfboard rack also features a back cushion for your passenger as well as straps for your beach blanket.

The bike may not be as serious as the other custom jobs to come out of Deus Ex Machina, but it is an inviting little ride that seems ready to welcome in the fun of summer.
