Unique Boxy Custom Bike

This bike began its life as a 2008 Yamaha Scorpio motorbike. Then the guys at Jakarta-based Thrive Motorcycles got their hands on it and made some kind of a magic touch. After then, here's a unique boxy-shaped custom motorcycle as the result.

They stripped it down, added some custom handlebars, fitted fat and knobby off-road tires to 18-inch spoke rims, added stainless steel exhaust, put in a smartphone mount for a dashboard, and cut the body from a sheet of aluminum. And the frame is made by custom to accommodate the insane body design.

As the result, the 2008 Yamaha Scorpio custom bike with Bandung-plate number now given a name of the 'Thrive MC T005 Cross,' under commissioned of a client who's a graphic designer.

As explained to Pipeburn, a Thrive builder said, "We began to wonder what kind of spirit would live in between such extremes. We though there must be more than neutrality; maybe the grey area is more mysterious than you could ever imagine? What if it could be really bad and very good at the same time?"

To ensure decent amounts of off-road control, Thrive sourced a new Rental ‘Fatbar’ handlebar and completed the set-up with a custom clutch and brake lever, a custom dashboard with indicators and a GPS/phone mount, and some custom switch gear. 

They capped off the ‘bars with bespoke bar-end turn signals to try keep to the overall clean look. Job done, then. Comfortable? Probably not. But as soon as you see yourself reflected in a car window, you won't care how it feels.
