With the creation brief revolving around an "retro-industrial" exciting concept, it was almost clear from the start that the finished bike was to be a glorious machine. Macco went for new Rizoma handlebars with Tomaselli grips and a single gauge for a minimalist look, matched to a Bates single 5.75" (14.6 cm) headlight and Mongrel taillight.
Fenders and the license plate bracket were made in-house, just like the cool side panels which left the rear brake pump on the outside and thus added a dash of interesting styling to the Dusty Pearl.
Bitubo WME dual shocks have been chosen for the rear, while the fork got Wilbers progressive springs for enhanced feel and better behavior during braking. Laced rims came in place and were shod with an 140mm Metzeler Tourance in the rear and a Dunlop 110mm in the front.
Racing foot pegs and Rizoma front brake reservoir were also added and the ignition was relocated. The hacked subframe gave way to a custom Macco seat, while the exhausts were wrapped and SuperTrapp silencers replaced the old ones.
The painting was also done by Maccomotors and the old Bonneville was gone, with the amazing steampunk-ish Dusty Pearl in its stead. Macco are on a really good way to making it big in the custom scene, as their style is as flowing and as natural as it gets, and we thoroughly enjoy their machines.
