Deus Bike Build Off 2016 and the Bastard Child – The Build Up

 

 

There is no event in Australia quite like the Deus Bike Build Off.  Held in Sydney 4 times since its instigation in 2010, the build off accepts and encourages the creation of motorcycles of all forms, celebrating creativity above all else.  Entering for my fourth time, I fell into the idea of creating an adult’s version of a kids tricycle.  Something that has the feel and form of a 1960’s kids Cyclops tricycle.

Beginning with a bent $50 Honda NC50 and a $100 non-running Chinese quad bike, here are a few images of what was involved in the creation of the Bastard Child.
