Deus Ex Machina Announces "TT800"

A Deus Ex Machina TT800.


New custom motorcycle from Woolie’s Workshop

VENICE, California—Deus Ex Machina Motorcycles USA announces the newest addition to their line of hand-built custom motorcycles: the TT800. Built by US Motorcycle Design Director, Michael Woolaway, the TT800 pays tribute to the highly successful Triumph factory TT machines from the mid-1960s.

Created for a customer requesting a new, old Triumph, the build sources a Kawasaki W650 bored out to 800cc with CR carbs, sports a custom TT inspired exhaust, custom chromoly racing frame, re-valved Öhlins forks, and a custom gusseted swing arm for more stability. A Beringer six-piston caliper front brake provides stopping power. Built for a rider of larger stature, the bike is designed for subtle, beautiful, old school comfort. A big surfboard-like seat with Kushitani waterproof leather offers business class level seating comfort. The bike is going to coastal France and will be used to go to and from the beach. The color inspiration is top secret but appears olive green in the hard sun and nearly black in the shade.

As is the case with all builds, Woolie’s Workshop strives to use as many American made parts as possible. TT800 proudly features components from several US-based fabricators and manufacturers.
