I gotta come clean. I never liked KTM's... Until this one came along !
Built by MaceTech Industries, this dWRENCHED bike is a true offering to the Gods Of Steampunk. It's not a chopper n'or a cafe racer. It's ''just'' a crazy man's dream rolling in the real life.
     It started out as a 2000 model KTM 640 Adventure, with a water-cooled 625cc single cylinder hidden under acres of plastic.  Don't know if you're familiar with that model...but the stock bike it's huge like a freakin camel ! Not to mention the radiator guards... WHAT ?! Yep, they are actual slings from some Russian Mosin-Nagant riffles with aluminum panels. That's just plain dWRENCHED !
   “With that giant coffee-can piston swinging around, the KTM can be a bit teeth-chattering. Tons of usable torque though, and the bike is very light—despite its looks.” - says Mace Livingston.

A Triumph Daytona front fork and a KTM Duke's swing arm give the bike a more agressive look. Even the frame got swapped with one made of welded steele tubbing. The exhaust comes from the Duke as well, but  modified. As  a side note,  the bike will be featured in Series 4 of the Cafe Racer TV Show.

   “Once the tank was built and we looked at it on the bike, it was too chaotic and intense to paint it. We loved it in raw steel, just the way it was.”

Oh Hell Yeah !  Just the way we like it here @ dWRENCHED.com !
