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.
