There are seemingly infinite ways to customize a motorcycle; after all, custom means custom. Riders can alter so many variables to meet the desires of their road dog fantasies. Some customizations enhance form or function, while others are just because.
Some custom bikes have features that set them apart from the run-of-the-mill custom ride. The bike featured in the video below, named “Fleshwound,” is an example of such a “just ‘cus” moto-beast. Fleshwound was built out of old bike parts, car parts, a Mexican rug, and a Corona bottle. This custom ride is not for the faint of heart.
“I have to admit, it’s not the most practical vehicle. It’s great to go get ice cream,” its maker fesses in the video below.
The bike does have a unique look. It’s engine is based on the original chassis of a 1972 Yamaha. Other parts come from an old Dodge Chevy and various motorcycle engine parts. It features an empty Corona bottle as its fuel gauge. Since the glass bottles are susceptible to breakage, as of the making of the video, Fleshwound operates with a “Generation 3” Corona gauge.
Though the bike has an admittedly poor turning radius, it does look striking as it creeps along the straight highway.
