Turning a veritable roadster such as the Kawasaki W650 into a unique hardtail chopper can prove very challenging as builders must sacrifice comfort for style and it is this precise case that we’re witnessing here with the Deus Sacred Cow bobber.
We happen to like this Deus Ex Machina creation very much and we have come to find that it was built according to the strict requirements of New York motorcyclist and motorcycle design company owner Billy Joel, who has considered a hardtail frame kit, 21" front wheel, spring-mounted saddle, handmade tank and cleaned up looks as being the most appropriate means of transformation.
Because good looks must always be backed by engine performance, this custom bike’s parallel-twin gets a 720cc big bore kit. Also considering the weight loss, the Deus Sacred Cow bobber should be significantly zippier than the stock bike. This is what the happy Brooklyn customer eagerly waits to find out as the bike is on its way towards him as we speak. Meanwhile, Billy Joel has given an interview to Hell for Leather Magazine, so read it here to find out more about his passion for motorcycles and about what he plans to do with his latest ride.
