Kenzo Motorcycle by Death Machines of London Is a True Work of Art

Kenzo MotorcycleDeath Machines of London has reimagined a 1977 Honda Gold Wing GL1000 to create a road warrior worthy of a samurai. Dubbed Kenzo, the ride is inspired by a samurai general’s armor and named after Kenzo Tada, a Japanese motorcycle racer who was the first Asian to compete in the Isle of Man TT, back in 1930.Kenzo Motorcycle by Death Machines of London

The details are pretty impressive, this eye-catching custom ride utilises a pair of updated ACOU 60 Ohlins, with springs made specifically for the build by Hagon, the brakes use a mix of Brembo M4 forged radial calipers, a BMW master cylinder, and DMOL’s own Type R01 handlebar levers, the seat unit was then wrapped in embossed leather, while the body work was finished in a custom “Titanium Samurai” paintwork, with matt black detailing. Each of the 18-inch wheels has been relaced and shot in satin black before being wrapped in Avon rubber.Kenzo Motorcycle

“Kenzo is the result of traditional craft combined with state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, and plenty of headaches, cuts, burns, and serious reconsiderations of life choices,” says James Hilton.

Despite all the incredible elements, the speedometer really stands out, “Kenzo’s hand-crafted speedometer features a dragon, cast from an 18th Century Japanese jewel box, and a hand-made pointer of the same finish,” James explains.

The price? Kenzo motorcycle is priced at £56,000.00 (approximately $72,500USD) at current exchange rates. For orders and more info visit Death Machines of London’s website.
