Speaking of trends, I don't see another reason why BikeExif goes in the original article (here) on and on with the steampunk idea and term; regarding this creation. It doesn't have the slightest thing in common with the steampunk art or feel. Again, maybe it's another ''hip'' term to use these days for washing hipster brains :)
This is what Berlin-based Urban Motor have built for their entry into Glemseck’s inaugural Essenza sprint.-BikeExif quote.
From the donor Jawa bike only the engine was kept while the body was custom designed by Henry Schulze. The tubular frame was built by Urban Motor and Marvin Diehl of KRT Framework, built the bodywork; in colab with UM. In the same minimalistic style, the bars were welded to the rigid front end.
Cleary Easy is not a motorcycle built for comfort (you kiddin' me ?!) or speed. Going fast maybe while going down the road downhill, as close to vertical. (Too mean?!...funny though)
But I like it because it's simple in a honest way I can't explain; yet ingenious. And even sexy. In a way only very thin sexy ladies can be. It's not something you can explain but it's there !
