Deus Ex Machina Malachi Crunch Dirt Bike

Unlike many custom rigs that are more for easy cruising than hard riding, the Deus Ex Machina Malachi Crunch Dirt Bike was built to race from the get-go. Adhering to VMX regulations, the Deus Japan team went about modifying the bike while retaining the Honda XL500's spirit. As a result, the standard steering bearings and head stock were retained, but paired with a set of late '80s XR600 forks, while a custom rear suspension was added, with nearly 200mm of travel. Other modifications include a custom swing arm, Ikon alloy gas shocks and springs, and an epoxy composite seat base and side covers that provide modern comfort without losing the original's early motocross DNA.
