Free Kustom Cycles Kz400
By Anthony van Someren - 11 Mar 13
Free Kustom Cycles is yet another Spanish workshop knocking on the doors of the custom brat/cafe scene, and we've been waiting a while to see what proprietor Marcos Vazquez would come up with next. This tasteful Kz400 is exactly what we were hoping for; simple class.
The bike was built for João Novaes who knew exactly what he wanted; a bike with "classical essence'. It was completely disassembled, part by part, screw by screw, cleaned-up and rebuilt into this scrambler/brat hybrid machine, complete with pipe wrap and Firestones.
48mm mini-Mini speedo and matt black headlamp with integrated stone guard keeps it tight at the front, although a lack of a front fender suggests she'll be a dry weather ride.
Cream and flat black paint with a pinstripe gives a timeless look and is by KILIAN RAMIREZ of PIC-ASTUDIO, who also did the photos.
Brown seat is flat but looks supportive.
And I'll leave the final comments to Marcos:
"Since long time ago we warned you and here they are !! The pics of our latest project !! If your follow our blog already know that this bike has taken time because it has been completely disassembled, screw to screw, everything needed to clean up and create exclusive pieces for her. I wanted to give special thanks to Gabri and Edu, for their help during the process. To Kilian Ramirez Caballero of PIC-ASTUDIO, also for your unconditional support, excellent paint job and these amazing pictures !! And especially to its owner João Novaes, for placing their trust in us to do the bike of his dreams?"
