The Onyx By Deus Ex Machina ($CALL) for a customer who wanted a bike that was stylish, and could easily go from road to sand. The vision started off with a 2012 Triumph Scrambler, which is always a great start for any build.They started with Black MX bars from a Yamaha TW, a Motogradget Chronoclassic speedometer paired with a Motogadget M-Unit, and levers from Pazzo.Metal changes included keeping the stock Triumph tank, but adding a fresh coat of black paint, bespoke fenders, and a new 2-into-1 British custom exhaust. The airbox was removed to free up some space and to give the bike a light, airy look. The hole the stock box left behind was filled with K&N filters. They added an RSV Aprilla for the rear mag which gives the bike a nice finishing touch. And finally, you don't have a surf bike without the appropriate surfboard brackets.The Onyx is another amazing build for one of the top bike customizers dare I say in the world.[gallery type="rectangular" ids="22492,22491,22490,22489,22488,22487,22486,22485"]
Such was the impact of Jaws ($6) on its release that it actually did make people afraid to go in the water. Directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the novel by Peter Benchley, Jaws is still the benchmark against which all subsequent killer shark movies have been compared. Chief Brody, Roy Schneider, has his quiet life shattered when the town of Amity is terrorized by a great white shark. A power battle begins between him and mayor as his priority is keeping the good people of Amity safe while the mayor refuses to close the beaches. Also starring Richard Dreyfuss and boasting a sublime performance by Robert Shaw as crazy Quint the shark hunter, this movie is a true classic.
Quite simply, the 100 Best Guy Movies - Classics has been created from my own experiences and from discussions with friends. Now with this being said this list is top heavy in three general areas.I love science fiction movies. A good sci-fi movie with a well-developed plot makes me a happy camper. I also love movies with great plot twists.A movie that has a final scene that takes you on an unexpected journey or keeps you thinking days after you've seen it can't be beat.And lastly movies with great fight scenes or shoot 'em up scenes. These just can't be gratuitous lop his head off for no reason just to show some gore type of movies, but the action must be integral to the plot and be so well shot that it leaves you speechless.If you think a movie doesn't belong, or have a suggestion to make the list better, let me know by posting a comment on our Facebook page.
