The Boodaak by Deus Machina ($TBA) gets its name from the sounds made as you roll on and off of its throttle. It's a funny name for a classic Deus Machina bike. The Boodaak started off with a HRC Johnny Campbell spec Honda XR650R engine that has oversized valves and a Carrillo rod. Almost everything else on the bike is custom including the frame, swingarm, the Racetech shock that was valved by Jimmy Woods, the seat, and the dual exhaust. The Bookdaak was made to be an aggressive, high performance bike and it looks like Deus hit their mark. Check out all the pics after the break.(more…)
