"Not easy to find a theme that matches even though in Indonesia there are many cultures that can be lifted. To find the theme of realist airbrush paintings this I did it while traveling to various areas in Java. Until finally the choice fell on Prabu Siliwangi, the figure of the famous king of Pajajaran Kingdom," said Jati who claimed once a long stay in Bandung.
Valiant impression of the figure of the famous king of Pajajaran kingdom could be seen in the area of the fuel tank complete with the figure of a tiger. Gold accents also complement his airbrush touches that make this bike more luxurious. These colors are consistently applied up to the small parts in the engine area, its spoke rims up to small devices such as the cover bolts.

It can be seen on the clutch house up to front shock absorber tubes, and gas tank. Naturally, the process becomes very long, to complete the modification takes about 8 months.
Jati working on his café racer bike is completely on the details. This is seen, for example on the seats, which use cowhide material and carved, handgrips also appear eccentric and made of the ruyung or damar wood. To the braking area, there is a super large disc brake made by handmade.
