The Wishbones by Deus Ex Machina

The original Kawasaki W650 motorcycle was part of the W line that came out during the late 60’s and early 70’s with the aesthetic of the time: big, bold, and badass. Though times have changed, there’s still a desire for that kind of rough-and-ready machine on the road, and with the best of the old and the new, Deus Ex Machina has made it in The Wishbones.

Crafted by the expert mind of Jeremy Tagand, The Wishbones is a lighter version of the W650 that is ready to hit the streets or kick up some dirt. Deus raised the adjustable suspension for taking on rough terrain, giving it a junkyard dog feel while still keeping a classy, classic look. The front and rear fenders are a hand-rolled alloy that dumps the steel along with the potential for rust. It’s lighter and hungrier, but just as reliable as the good old days.
