Sometimes, when a person is lucky enough to know financial success in their life, they spend their latter years realizing the dreams of their childhood. And that’s exactly how this drop-dead gorgeous custom Kawasaki W650 from Taiwan’s 2LOUD Custom came to be.

Built for a man who seemingly had everything — including numerous supercars — the customer wanted to fulfill his childhood dream of experiencing the freedom of two wheels. As such, he gave the guys at 2LOUD no restrictions on the custom build, allowing them their own measure of freedom to let the bike evolve on its own. And the transformation was both extensive and exceptional — including a fully-customized stainless steel swingarm, handmade steel handlebars, a clean-up of all the electrics, new custom leather upholstery, a reshaping of the tank and rear fender, and a nose-to-tail repaint and refinish, amongst a slew of other things. All told, this brilliant bike is almost like a meshing of Art-Deco and modern styling and is truly a sight to behold.
