Any custom builder can make motorcycles look bolder and more complicated. As a matter of fact it takes much more creativity and more courage to go in the opposite direction. Many of you may find this contraption, an exercise in simplicity, quite ridiculous. Others will think that the guy who imagined it is kind of a genius, illustrating on 2 wheels the famous quote of Antoine de Saint-Exupery “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
In new or old metal, a motorcycle is really extremely simple if it’s built only from useful parts. For pleasure, just add a few beautiful touches. With Easy (like a Sunday morning), I am convinced that Germany, Berlin, based shop Urban Motor wanted to add a touch of dry humor. But don’t be misled, there was a lot of work involved in making this Jawa’s two-stroke machine look like a racer.
A handmade new chassis from steel tubing, a minimalist very unique bodywork by Marvin Diehl of KRT Framework, a one-off front end with integrated handlebars, a pair of over skinny 23” alloy SM Pro wheels with rear drum brake, ultra short smoothly bended exhaust pipes, custom rear sets. an exposed throottle assembly, leather covered grips, etc. And yes, a painter worked on it, adding just a touch of gold on the front end and swingarm. Smile and go slowly…Urban Motor.
