Hugo Eccles is the founder of United Motorcycles, a design firm that creates custom bikes by the likes of Ducati, Triumph, and now electric motorcycle manufacturer Zero. The freedom that comes with an electric drivetrain — no fuel tank, carburetors, exhaust — leaves an almost unlimited canvas for the designer, and Eccles wasted no space with the Zero platform. Taking inspiration from drag bikes and aircraft, the end result is as minimalist as you can while showing off the centerpiece of any motorcycle — the powertrain. Only enough bodywork was used to allow the rider to ride, with knee grips and a transparent "tank" that houses the digital instrument cluster. The frame and suspension were lightly modified, with other custom touches that include CNC'd footpegs and a Motogadget gauge mounted in a custom carrier. While motorcycles move toward an electric future, the custom scene will move right along with them.
