Deus Ex Machina have done it again with their latest build the Deus Ex Machina Sea Sider Motorcycle ($CALL). This bike is perfect for every beach bum living a life of leisure. From the looks of things the original donor bike was a variant of the Honda Trail 90 which was popular in the 60's and 70's. The Trail 90 featured an 89cc OHC single cylinder engined paired with a 4-speed drivetrain.Deus took this already simple bike and stripped it down to make it as lightweight as possible. They started off by stripping the frame of any unneeded parts. From there they added their own customizations including a hand made exhaust and surf rack, some vintage bicycle pieces like the handlebars and front light, and a front basket.The end result is a small lightweight bike that makes everyone drool who sees it. If you're around Bali, you can check the Sea Sider in the Temple of Enthusiasm in Canggu showroom.
