Awesome Aussie

Deus Ex Machina is Latin for “God from the machine”.  It’s also a famous custom shop founded in Australia. And the Deus boys sure packed lots of heavenly details into this machine, a Bonneville-based custom. Dubbed “Dave’s Bonny” (no, we don’t know who Dave is either), the bike features a chassis lowered a full two inches from stock and a custom lengthened swingarm.

Other details include a custom Deus seatpan, vintage-style Firestone tires, and handlebar controls from a Triumph Tiger 955. Add everything up and this Bonny has a build sheet to rival any custom. Check out bikeexif.com for full specs on this Deus original.
