Deus Ex Machina has opened its doors in the US of A, setting up shop in, where else but flashy Los Angeles. Hot on the heels of the opening, new design director Michael Woolaway came up with a brilliant idea – to build an all-American Deus cafe racer custom bike – and to call it (dramatic pause) The American! Jokes aside, it’s one of the most stunning projects that Deus has pulled off so far, using a legendary C&J Low Boy dirt-track chassis as well as a fully-built Harley Sportster engine mated to a five-speed gearbox. Also, did we mention that all the parts are made in America?
The fully-built motor includes forged J&E high-compression pistons, Edelbrock big-valve cylinder heads and bob-weight-balanced crank performance rods, all of that sitting on top of a Halrey five-speed bottom end. The front suspension comes from Buell, while the triple clamps are sourced from Durelle Racing. Other goodies include Works Performance hand-built shocks, SuperTrapp mufflers and a Motogadget speedo. Right now, we can just imagine how this thing’s going. Absolutely beautiful!
