BMW R65 delux motorcycle pays homage to mad max


sicily-based delux motorcycles is a motorbike workshop ran by two italian friends who love to customize bikes on their terms, expressing originality. the partners also have separate jobs–where gabriele owns a television studio; and massimo owns a traditional sicilian restaurant. these are their day jobs, however from look of this bike, they could certainly remain successful without them. the boys are united by similar passions including surfing; skateboarding; rock music; and r’n’b.

the bike started life as a 1983 BMW ‘R65′ and although it had exactly 6 owners before they received it, there were only 45 000 kms on the speedometer. ‘we found it in an old barn, covered with tons of dust and rust. originally owned by a farmer, they could only but assume that it was previously used on the farm for riding through ploughed fields or herding cattle,’ says gabriele and massimo.


their vision was to approach the build in a similar fashion to a ‘mad max’ vehicle: by using pretty much anything the could get their hands on. ‘he is reborn of everything’, they charmingly comment.
