Bandit9’s Unibodied EVE Motorcycles Are Sci-Fi-Inspired Art On Wheels

Headed up by Daryl Villanueva and based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Bandit9 is a custom motorcycle shop with a highly-distinctive sci-fi-inspired style and a propensity for small-bore air-cooled 1960’s Honda singles. And the bespoke bike business’s latest two-wheeled project takes the form of two unibodied ’67 Honda Supersports dubbed the “EVE LUX” and “EVE 2020.”

Completed in just six-months and commissioned by Hong Kong-based luxury retail outfit, Lane Crawford, the EVE bikes both feature a single-piece unibody tank-and-tail section that rests atop the Honda’s original pressed steel frame. Out in front, USD forks have been tacked into place, while out back, custom-designed underslung swing-arms are paired with a wildly-unique mono-shock setup with a mounting point integrated into to the rear fender/hugger. Both bikes also feature petal rotors, custom exhausts, tear-drop saddles, aluminum wheels, LED lighting throughout including bespoke bar-end units, aftermarket instrumentation, custom-machined reservoir covers, and one-off levers, clip-ons, and rear-sets. While they boast the same body design, there are a number of minor differences between the two EVE models, with the 2020 sporting a cafe cowl, a USS Enterprise-inspired turbine engine cover, and an all-black paint job while the LUX gets a traditional round headlight, an exposed air-cooled eighth-liter mill, and a polished metal and black livery complemented via horizontal bronze pinstriping.
