After seeing Babylon A.D and remaining hooked by the futuristic machines showcased in the movie I couldn’t help myself from being more and more interested in French custom bikes. But as much as I’d dig, one builder in particularly deprived me from sleep. Yes, you’ve guessed, it is all about those Lazareth custom bikes, isn’t it?
Made famous by Vin Diesel and the cinema screen, the bikes are best characterized best by their computer-controlled big supercharged V-Twin engines and futuristic design, often implying single-sided forks and swingarms. Babylon A.D. inspired this builder to go for the post-apocalyptic look of these streetfighters, which is an opportunity as unique as they get.
The video features the bikes as they are being tested, revealing an incredible sound that has nothing to do with a V-Twin motor.
