Deus Ex Machina Motorcycles USA Releases "Boodaak" And "Dakdaak" Cafe Racer Customs

Deus Ex Machina Motorcycles USA's "Dakdaak."


New BOODAAK and DAKDAAK custom motorcycles from Woolie’s Workshop

VENICE, California — Deus Ex Machina Motorcycles USA announces two new additions to their line of hand-built custom motorcycles: BOODAAK and DAKDAAK. Built by US Motorcycle Design Director, Michael Woolaway, the two builds—dubbed “Sibling Rivalry”—are enduro engine-based café racers, customized with state-of-the-art racing componentry and hand-made craftsman parts.

A project several years in the making, Sibling Rivalry was born of the idea to take a pair of road going enduro bikes, purchased several years ago as California plated, street-legal conversions, and turn them into competition capable, café styled super singles.

Both engines were custom tuned by Jim Wood at Southland Racing with Boodaak being powered by a HRC Johnny Campbell spec Honda XR650R motor with oversized valves and a Carrillo rod, and Dakdaak running a Honda CRF450X stage two motor with two-millimeter oversize stainless steel valves for longevity. Both builds feature hand made chromoly frames and custom chromoly swingarms and hand formed aluminum gas tanks. The custom made seats are upholstered in Kushitani waterproof leather.

“Boodaak is torquey, fairly smooth, has a big long power band and super good turning,” says designer Woolaway. “Dakdaak is quicker turning, much much lighter, and has a motor that runs between 400 and 12500 RPM and is built to run at the rev limiter all day long. Or for about 50 hours anyway.”

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