Early inspiration in the making of this electric board tracker was obtained when two company founders Jaromir Dziewic and Bartek Bialas met each other several years ago. Then, both agreed and with the spirit for design and made an old-fashioned board tracker style with a wooden touches in several parts.

Yes, now in the Kustomfest 2017, The Purwokerto based workshop show their special custom motorcycle named 'Kala Bendu,' a motorcycle with a 815cc V-Twin engine that is 90 percent handmade built in. Kala Bendu itself has meaning "Ora Edan, Ora Kumanan" or "Do not go crazy not miss out."
'Handmade' here means that the machine is really made by themself and not just a modification.

According to the owner of Psycho Engine, M. Yusuf Adib Mustofa, that he deliberately made the machines, frames, and others by themselves in accordance with the theme of Kustomfest 2017 ie 'No Boundaries.'

So it is not surprising that these custom motorcycle finally won the 'Best People Choice' title in the Kustomfest 2017 which held at Jogja Expo Center (JEC), Yogyakarta, (October 7-8, 2017).

815cc V-Twin Engine 
For the machine, Yusuf made by his own the Kala Bendu's crankcase. The crankshaft and transmission containers are made from a mixture of metal waste. The material is from parts of unused machine blocks, which are then melted and reprinted for a new crankcase.

Engine blocks and cylinder heads uses the part of Bajaj Pulsar 200. Yusuf said it takes 4 blocks of Pulsar 200 cylinder. From four parts of the block then cut by him into 2 cylinders as the pistons place.

The piston rod uses the part of the old Norton with a stroke length of 100 mm, while the 72 mm in diameter piston taken from the Honda Excelent car. For camshaft, he uses custom cam. The degree and size of the sprinkler valve device was machined in accordance with the results of his calculations.

Here are several pictures of Kala Bendu engine (All pictures taken from: http://bit.ly/2xA0OFw) 

"The compression factor is low at 9:1, which is supposed to be ideal at 10:1, but I'll look for it later after this. Because with this size it has reached 120 km/h, if the timing belt that used is the part of Mitsubishi L300 petrol engine," he said.

In order to be safe and not hit by a lawsuit, Yusuf made his V-Twin engine with a 43-degree angle. This is because the 45-degree angle belongs to Harley-Davidson, while the Indians engine was 42 degrees.

Exterior 
Not complete if the machine is made itself but the exterior is not. After completing the machine matters, then he switching to make the framework of a motorcycle. Where the frames itself is made of 30 mm diameter pipe and 6 mm thickness. The frame was combined with the Yamaha R15's front shock that has been modified with an additional oil tube.

There is something interesting here that is the form of rear suspension. Instead of monoshock installed, Yusuf rather uses two shock units that are made in a horizontal position. Those shock units were given an additional plate and connect to the middle of the rear arm made of 2 mm pipe box.

Here are several pictures of Kala Bendu accesories. (All pictures taken from: http://bit.ly/2xA0OFw)

Because it using the rims that taken from the Honda CX500 which originally use axle, in here Yusuf was forced to re-create the rear wheel holder to be driven by the chain. Where the chain is connected with gearbox taken from the 1956 BSA 350.

While the gas tank is made of 1.2 mm drum plate and wasp tail from 2 mm plate. Finally as a sweetener, tank, wasp tail and upholstery then covered with genuine leather complete with special Javanese ethnic carvings of the puppet figures and mega mendung motifs made by Cetul Leather Art from Yogyakarta.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops.... ••• [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NAIKMOTOR | DAPUR PACU]

These strange concept car named Sbarro Autobau

There's a lot of cars that have been present in the automotive world today. But who would have thought from the millions of cars was tucked into one-off concept car that has unclear model, even arguably tacky. And more than that, if these concept car can be seen most adopt its model from various car models in the world. Apparently these strange concept car named Sbarro Autobau Concept.

This sole concept car first appeared in front of the automotive enthusiasts on the event of Geneva Motor Show 2010. 

There's the humanist side on these car, it turn out the car was deliberately created as a tribute from Franco Sbarro to his friend who is a former Swiss racer named Fredy Lienhard who has won race 24 Hours of Daytona in 2002.
Sbarro Autobau Concept does not has the door as found on the car in general. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2z4Vl5S)
Extract from the booklet distributed at the Geneva Motor Show 2010 : "Autobau is a tribute to my friend Fredy Lienhard for its success in international competition as well as his professional and personal lives. I hope that this interpretation is worthy of wonders it has captured a year ago, with fireworks. A lifetime of passion and work."

And as reported from Autoblog, these one-off concept car has a weight about 1,500 kg. Seen from the front section, some say the car like a Lamborghini single seater supercar. It is not clear what the car's designer intention with a stingray-like shape installed on the front.

Yes, it looks like the Lamborghini Egoista by adopting a stingray-like shape and 2 holes in the front, but the difference is the hole of Sbarro Autobau almost coincide. Those holes serves as a means of air intake to meet the aerodynamic factors? Not clear also.

Further on the pillars of A to C there are like the trim. And not clear, what is the function of these trim. Uniquely we will not find the door as found on the car in general, it turns out these concept car is applying the hydraulic system to lift the roof forward and serves as the access into the car's cabin. A closer look reveals into the cabin, there's a striking interior in red alcantara and black metal.

On the rear section, it looks like a racing car of the 70s that apply 4 exhausts.  While at the stern also there is no bumper but only pinned a series of device that resembles a spoiler on the left and right. But still not understood what the function of the device.
But do not underestimate it eventhough look weird, turn out the Sbarro Autobau was using a Ferrari V12 engine that can generate power of 500 Hp. But unfortunately there's no detailed explanation of the Sbarro Autobau engine.

The Autobau, like many Sbarro's one-off, is a car that has its own personality, beyond time and fashion. As well as an example of automotive endangered which does not deal with marketing, practical sense or rationality. A fun car, unique, strange and far from crisis. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOBLOG | GTPLANET]
