These days, exclusivity is rare in the world of motorcycles. Most custom motorcycle builders today use lightweight carbon fibre components to create lighter, faster motorcycles than ever before. Here is an illustration that goes exactly the other way, making the weight of this average CX500 355 kg. German stone artist Chris Zernia dreamed of a planet distinct from the contemporary one. His prehistoric creation strikes a similar posture for the camera.
The gasoline tank, headlight assembly, foot controls, and seat unit were all successfully constructed using volcanic basalt that was extracted from the Eifel mountain region. He claims that basalt is his favourite stone, and using it has increased the CX500’s weight by 130 kg. For increased strength, the suspension and frame have both been updated. Even the suspension was taken from the Harley Davidson Dyna line.
Due to technical restrictions, the front brake of the bike has been removed, which ups the difficulty of the game. At a tournament in Germany, where customers are only allowed to spend a maximum of 5000 Euros on their motorcycles, the CX500 will face tight competition from other modified bikes. Even stronger Basalt helmets that require a strong neck for placement have been created by him. Not only that, but Zernia has already begun construction on the next bike, which he is calling Rolling Stone and which is built on an 11 Sportster frame.
