Dirt Racer for Lions Den Motorcycles
20th August 2017
Last week I had the pleasure of shooting this fantastic new build from custom motorcycle genius Dan Thomas of Lions Den Motorcycles. The bike which started life as a standard Yamaha XT600 Dual Sport bike, was completely transformed into this mean looking road racer hybrid.
Dan spent months completing this build, and its fair to say, the finished result and attention to detail is nothing short of amazing. So many parts for this bike were built completely from scratch, either fabricated from sheet metals, turned on a lathe or carved by hand. The seat, for example, is made from Zebrano wood, and was hand shaped, resin coated and polished. A process which took weeks in of itself.
Heres a few of my favourite pictures from the shoot. Enjoy!
