Building a decent custom motorcycle on a slim budget is a tall order. But you know what’s even harder? Doing it with no budget at all—unless your name is Edi Buffon.
Operating as Machine 1867 out of Sydney, Edi’s known for his wildly imaginative machines. This Suzuki GS650 bobber is a typical Machine 1867 build; completely radical, and laden with complex solutions to non-existent problems. And yes, he really did build it without spending a dime (well, almost).
“While contemplating my next build and becoming increasingly busy as my business progressed,” says Edi, “I remembered that I had a Suzuki GS650 in storage. It was a bike I had tinkered with several years earlier, but lost interest in as other projects took priority.”
“I removed the engine and set it up on my fabrication table along with the wheels, and took a step back to contemplate my next move. I decided to set the goal of a zero budget build, by just using what I had on the shelves and making everything else.”
