We love Deus Ex Machina designs and their latest piece of work is no different. The Dreamliner by Deus Ex Machina ($TBA) features a fully rebuilt 750-valve engine fitted inside a light chromoly frame. Additional updates include, cone engineering pipes, a set of Keihin FCR racing carburetors paired with K&N air filters, Michelin Pilots on 17 inch tubeless spoke wheels with full-floating Kosman Specialty rotors. This beautiful work of art is finished with customized tank, fender, and seat cowl handmade from aluminum with double tuck stitching. And of course if you know Deus, then you know no build would be complete with re-valved Ohlin forks by Ed Sorbo.
Before you take off for your next trip, you may want to consider getting a beautiful top of the line suitcase like the Stabilist Rifle Case ($7900). This case is limited to 100 editions globally and sold exclusively through Globe-Trotter stores. The case is a handmade 26" aluminum suitcase. It features a telescopic sight handle. Inside, it is lined with quilted Alantara. If the Stabilist looks familiar it's because it made a cameo in the James Bond film SKYFALL.
The Lunecase ($40) is an intelligent case that's powered by electromagnetic energy and wirelessly provides you with visual notifications of incoming texts and calls. All electronic devices emit electromagnetic energy. The Lunecase uses this unused energy to transform the back of your phone into a notification center. Before the text or call even hits your phone's screen the Lunecase knows it's coming. All of this without the need for batteries or wires. It just makes you wonder what other potential uses are available for this unused energy. You can check out their Kickstarter campaign, which is still going on.
Motoped just announced a Motoped Survival Bike ($2,000+) just in time for the next zombie attack. If you don't know, motopeds are a cross between a mountain bike and a moped. The engine is a 4-stroke Honda 50cc XR/CRF50. The stock engine is street legal in most states and has a top speed about 30 miles per hour. The cool thing is that because the engine is not above 50cc's with a max of 30mph, it can be ridden on most streets as a motorized bicycle without the need for motorcycle registration & insurance. This allows you to ride and park anywhere a bike can. Now take that base motoped and add a cool paint job, a one-gallon gas container, flashlight, climbing rope, tomahawk, crossbow, a bunch of other cool survival gear and you've got the ultimate survival machine. Stay locked on Motoped's website for updates and release dates.
