Ryan and Joe of Suus took their electrified Honda C90 Motorcycle ($NFS) to Deus Ex Machina’s 3rd Bike Build Off and came home with a first-place trophy. Their bike won from a field of about 40 entrants. They started with one goal. To build a bike “that didn’t look awkward or unbalanced.” They also didn’t want the fact it was electric to be obvious. They took a Honda C90, along with a scooter frame, and some damaged electric parts and came up with the work of art you see here. The bike combines cutting-edge technology and retro design to great effect. It doesn’t make use of a gearbox and instead uses high-efficiency motors. Fewer moving parts means it’s reliable despite its age. This lightweight, nippy little cycle is perfectly suited to whizzing around tight city streets. Able to make laborious journeys more enjoyable and more eco-friendly.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
