Deus Ex Machina New Blood Sportster

Appropriately in time for the holidays with its deliciously red paint job, we bring you the Deus Ex Machina New Blood Sportster. Taking a 2004 Harley-Davidson 1200cc Sportster, the guys from down under have massaged their magic into this once dull v-twin, and made an eye-catching motorcycle (per usual). The most striking piece of the motorcycle is perhaps the hand-built exhaust pipe, which is half street-tracker, and half sportbike in inspiration. Then there is of course the matte blood red meets cream paint job that accents the otherwise blacked out bike. We think the effect is killer, and makes the Sportster design more palatable without going overboard.

By Deus standards this is a fairly light build-out of the Harley-Davidson Sportster, with other components consisting of wide clip-ons, 16″ front and read rim, a solo seat, custom brake hose, custom grips, alloy brake light, Storz rear sets, Ram Flow air filter, custom exhaust, and custom paint. Pricing is set at $29,900 Australian, which used to be a fairly modest price for us Americans, but with exchange rates where they are today, that’s $29,600 USD for this light custom…ouch!

    Nice rejuvination to the sporster! but is it worth the $26K price tag?? definitely not! At the most the bike is worth around $15K optimistically speaking!

    “Once dull” thirty thousand dollar Sportster?, hahahaha

  • yeah. i don’t see anything “delicious,” nor “eye-catching” here. i wouldn’t look at it if i saw it on the street. it looks like a stock sporty straight out of the hd factory with an exhaust that makes it look like a two-stroke.

    and almost 30k us for something that looks it spent one weekend in my neighbor’s garage?

    i am reminded of when rock bands lose their edge and start stamping out mediocre albums based off production techiques from their last hit.

    it’s like zz top; still grey but this time with a new suit. hooray. new suit.

    $30k for ANY Hardley is a joke. Much less a lightly customized Sportster. I’m sure there’s got to be at least a couple pirates out there drooling over it though.

    “Deux ex machina” is Latin for “God in the machine”; surely an inappropriate moniker for ANY Harley product.

    Especially when the devil is in the details.

    This is crazy but maybe some Harley nut will sucker for it. As for my opinion, it looks like some guy had a bunch of wrecked bikes and used all the parts to make one good one. I would pay maybe $2,500 for it considering I would have to use Harley parts to keep it running. That is costly.
