I love Deus bikes. Every time they come out with something new they push a new envelope I didn't even know existed. The Pegasus By Deus Ex Machina ($TBA) started off as a hardtail Kawasaki W650. Jeremy from Deus stripped the bike down to its bare bones and started off by putting a 21-inch tire in front and a 17 incher in the rear. Each of the rims and hubs were powder coated in a bright orange hue. Additional updates included a Bates style head light, custom mirrors, a customized Yamaha SR400 fuel tank, and a motor coated in a beautiful black satin. The client who order the bike has two CBR1000 track-only Fireblades and '69 Camaro in the garage sporting eye bleed color schemes. The fluorescent orange on the new bikes wheels matches the Fireblades perfectly. If you've got a bike that needs an awesome facelift, give Deus a call. They'll produce something beyond your wildest expectations.
