It’s not fast. It’s not big. It’s not even street legal. Based on a Suzuki RV90 — small commuter bikes from the 70s that got their power from 88 cc engines cranking out around 8 horsepower — this one-off Goof Bike is a collaboration between Jeremy Tagand, head mechanic at Sydney’s custom bike shop Deus Ex Machina, and Australian alternative surf/punk artist Paul McNeil.
Intended to get you from your Byron Bay or other coastal bungalow and down to the beach for early morning waves, the Goof Bike even offers storage for your (matching) board, way up high on an overhead rack. They gave it a retro-surf/punk paint job, a skinny exhaust and fat, sand-gripping tires. Paired with an extra cush seat and just-this-side-of-practical ape bars, the Goof Bike stands out plenty as it rockets (leisurely) towards the breaks. – Learn More
