the goof bike is a fun-sized surf sled that gets you to and from the beach

motorcycle brand deus ex machina has teamed up with artist paul mcneil to create the ‘goof bike’, an old-school and unconventional means of transport. the team began by stripping a stock suzuki RV90 — removing its mirrors, indicators, and other elements that more conventional minds would deem essential. evidently, the bike is a rebellious character that doesn’t fit into the crowd, and doesn’t want to.

‘if you hire an alternative artist to design a bike, don’t be surprised if you create a fun-sized surf sled that gets you from A to B — as long as A and B are interchangeably your home and favorite beach,’ says deus ex machina — whose main mechanic jeremy tagand worked directly with australia-based artist paul mcneil on the bike’s design.

‘a free flowing exhaust and a seat fit for a mayor make for a smooth and comfortable ride, albeit boisterous,’ continues deus. ‘ape-hangers that’ll give your arms a workout and a custom surf rack that outclasses any umbrella in a storm were fitted to complement paul’s artistic touch.’ head over to deus’ website to check out the full deus ex mcneil collection.
