Resident Deus Camperdown Head Mechanic, Jeremy Tagand, is becoming quite well known for his tracker rendition of the Kawasaki W650. The brief was the create an dirt-tracker with an urban assault feel, all with Jeremy’s special sauce. A rich blend of ingredients worked together to offer a once street based rig the ability to head to the bush. From raised adjustable suspension to low maintenance all black engine, frame and swing-arm with a ceramic coated exhaust system. Hose down the weekend’s dirt and this puppy is ready for the daily grind on city streets. The Midnight Rambler provides excellent response on and off the black top. Today’s offering:
- Tomaselli motocross bars for that old school feel
- Velona digital speedo/tacho – reducing the clocks to sleek pin-point vision
- Bates style headlight, carving away the bulk for a neat light
- Braided brake line offers assurance when reining in the extra grunt of the dyno tuned engine.
- Hand-rolled alloy front and rear fenders, leaving the heavy steel to rust in the past. A delicately recessed custom LED tail light complements the sleek line.
- Air-box removal, now breathing through twin K&N filters to re-jetted carbs.
- Exhaust gasses erupt through custom two-into-one headers which are ended with a gorgeous reverse cone stainless steel muffler, the all lot black ceramic coated.
- Custom length rear shock units by Ikon, black body, black spring and Progressive front Ikon springs.
- Revised fork internals and adjustment for pre-load, offer greater ground clearance while maintaining positive front-end feel.
- Tank and side covers are flavored with a custom color scheme: midnight blue hiding a very settle charcoal Deus logo on the tank.
- The motor has been stripped and painted in high temperature black.
- The wheel-set complete (hub, spoke, rim) styled up in black powder coat.
- For rider and pillion comfort we have a factory Kawasaki W800 seat, a satisfying serving for two.
- Metzeler Karoo 3 tyres have a taste for dirt, however sizzle on tar.
