How to make 100cc’s effortlessly cool: Dues 1976 Honda CB100

The Dues 1976 Honda CB100:


Slightly modified by Deus custom motorbikes, Indonesia:

Deus create effortlessly stylish, smaller bikes with hard wearing suspension and simple mechanics:

“We are currently building ‘The Deus Temple of Enthusiasm’ in Canggu. This 2000m2 site will be a clever combination of new and 100-year-old traditional Indonesian wooden houses, taking reference from a Kampung, or traditional Indonesian home village. This somewhat eclectic collection of buildings will house the showroom, art gallery, workshop facilities, photographic studio, artists studio, and even a surfboard shaping bay. Connected by a wide veranda full of tables and chairs is the Deus Cafe, where eventually Canggu locals, pro surfers and artists will rub elbows with riders gassing up on caffeine whilst out on their Bali excursions. A melting pot of ideas and ideologies, a Warung (stall) of Knowledge.”

What a genuinely beautiful piece of engineering… Inspiration indeed.
