based upon a two-cylinder engine from a 1964 jawa ‘350’, urban motor decided to scrap everything but the powerplant, before building a whole new chassis from steel tubing. its alloy bodywork was crafted in collaboration with marvin diehl of krt, who also created its unique handlebars with integrated front suspension design, hidden behind the graceful alloy silhouette.

two sleek 23” SM pro alloy rims frame its silhouette perfectly, and a single rear-drum-brake controls the bike’s deceleration. urban motor upgraded the engine with a new a jikov carburetor, and fabricated a pair of undulating, elgant exhausts that wrap beneath the engine. it took a minimalist approach for signalling, with no lights or turning signals present. a touch of matte gold paint on the forks and swingarm, while the grips are wrapped in dark brown leather with a supple seat to complement.

  • Certainly creative but a real nut-buster. Looks like the Sachs engine I had as a kid,
