Bandit9 Shows Eve, an All-Chrome Breathtaking Sport Moped

China is not exactly the first place to think about when custom motorcycles come into discussion, but this county is home for one of the truly spectacular bike builders: Daryl Villanueva, better known by the name of his workshop, Bandit9. Welcome Eve, the newest custom creation from Bandit9, a moped which is as sleek as it is enthralling.

Bandit9 Eve
Eve is a custom bike based on the old 1967 Honda SS50 sport moped, but there’s no resemblance between the two. Well, the engine positioning might hark back to the bike from the late 60’s, but that’s about all there is from that era. Daryl came up with his own frame design, opting for an unibody architecture. That is, a fame built as a single-piece design, with the swingarm being the only “articulation”.

The frame, fuel tank and steering neck are one single piece, and the looks of the bikes are dramatically enhanced by this solution. The tank is also a basepan for the genuine leather-covered seat, and the fluid lines of the bike are creating the impression of speed even when the bike is not moving. Streamlined and aggressive, the Bandit9 Eve also comes with low, clubman-type bars, a medium-sized, bulbous headlight and very supple forks and rear shocks.

Taking a good look at Eve, you’ll also notice the organic-looks custom exhaust sporting the same fluid lines and intriguing shape. And as if Daryl’s new bike was not already a wonderful, flowing appearance, the decision to provide it with a mirror chrome finish adds an even more noble touch. According to Bandit9, Eve can also be delivered with a bronze finish. Bandit9 is taking pre-orders for Eve, with a price tag of $4,600 (€3,345).
