Claymoto Quiet Riot Zero FX Motorcycle
Looking at Claymoto's designs, you'd be forgiven if you thought they used all the latest in computer-based tools and very little actual hands-on work. You'd also be wrong because Claymoto's primary medium is in the name — clay. Nick Graveley has been offering his talents to the car and motorcycle world for 16 years and has spent the last seven working exclusively with motorcycles. Based on the electric Zero FX, Nick spent 80 hours sculpting the bodywork and designing the rest of the bike before having everything made up in carbon fiber for the final install. The bike itself is a Zero SR/F with the design recalling classic flat trackers. The electric powertrain lends itself perfectly to the demands of flat track racing, and Nick's design incorporates guards and skidplates to protect critical areas. Despite the electric drivetrain and carbon fiber parts, the Quiet Riot is a reminder that human hands are going to be useful for a long time to come.
