Kraus Achuma, a Breathtaking Modern Steampunk Custom [Photo Gallery]
If you're in search of a common bike, Kraus Motor Co. is definitely not where you should be checking in. However, if you're willing to be amazed, a bike like Achuma is exactly what you need. Achuma will change, Kraus says: it will change color and it will grow old, just like the rider, with each day spent in the sun or rain.
Its bronze finish and raw sheet aluminium will grow dull or shiny, as its owner cares for it more or less, and just like the rider, Achuma will be a living motorcycle. While on the inside, Kraus engineering and customization magic were bestowed upon the premium S&S engine and Baker tranny, Achuma is clearly built for road-proven performance and not only for looking good in pictures.
Add in all the custom hand-made parts, such as the fuel and oil tanks, handlebars, frame, the solid Marchesini rims and the sleek digital Vapor instrumentation and you're ready to roll fast and in style. And by all means feel and see the bike evolve as you evolve, too.
