Deus Ex Machina's Two-Up Scrambler Build
The shop boys at Deus Camperdown did a number on this vintage Yamaha TW 225
Everyone’s favorite surf shop slash fashion brand
slash barber shop slash custom motorcycle operation, Deus Ex Machina, put their wide ranging talents to work on another badass build. This time around a vintage Yamaha TW 225 held the honorable position of donor bike. After a serious stint on the Deus Weight Loss diet (adios unnecessary plastic bits and bobs) the bike emerged leaner, meaner, and more badass than ever before.
Nicknamed Two-Up, the nimble Yamaha features a number of custom upgrades, most notably of which would be the double headlamp and taillight setup. An all-black paint scheme was applied to all but the vintage Husqvarna fuel tank, which was given a lovely ivory identity by Dutchy Motorcycle paint. Other updates include a new suspension, aftermarket pipes and muffler for a healthy growl, a new subframe and coordinating EasyRider seat. The airbox was of course swapped out for a pod filter, too.
In short, whether you ride bikes or not, this little single is one worth drooling over. Lightweight, stealth, and rugged, the Two-Up is the very definition of a bike built to be an around-town everyday rider, while also being fully capable tearing up some trail on the weekends or lunch break, if your so lucky.
