Deus x Zero: A custom SR/S electric sportbike






Electric motorcycles are a paradigm shift on so many levels, but any worries that they might kill the custom scene are unfounded. Electric customs from Untitled and deBolex have already shown us what’s possible, and now this amazing build from Deus Ex Machina has raised the bar again.
This custom Zero SR/S cuts such a classic line that it could be mistaken for a petrol-powered bike, despite being packed with high tech materials and upgrades. It comes from Deus’ US outpost, and it’s the last project that famed head wrench Michael ‘Woolie’ Woolaway completed there, before moving onto a new job. It’s also the first electric bike he’s built; sparked by a serendipitous meeting at last year’s Pikes Peak International Hillclimb.

Woolie was there fielding his wild Ducati-based race bike, and electric powerhouse Zero lined up with their race-prepped SR/F.
?When I met the guys out at Pike’s Peak and really got a good look at the bike,? says Woolie, ?I thought, that bike is the perfect platform to build something with. Because there’s no gas tank and there’s this trellis frame that’s beautiful, and everything else comes off and there’s nothing there. So in my mind, quietly, I was thinking, I’d love to do something with that bike because it’s a blank sheet of paper.?

It didn’t take long for Zero to deliver a brand new SR/S?the full-faired sportbike sibling of the SR/F?to Deus’ headquarters in Venice Beach, California. ?We didn?t have a design brief, really,? says Zero’s PR lead, Dan Quick. ?We just connected with Woolie and he was pumped to do something. So we got him a bike and told him to do something special… but whatever he wanted.?

With 110 hp and 190 Nm on tap, the Zero SR/S is a plenty capable electric sportbike. Woolie was instantly blown away by its performance and unique ride characteristics?and quickly formulated an idea of where he wanted to take the build, aesthetically.
?I wanted to do something kind of old and new,? says Woolie. ?Old shapes that I kind of grew up with, and new technology. And I wanted to build a bike that wasn’t really necessarily street legal, because that’s what I really love doing, and I thought that it might help lend to a better end product.?

The SR/S might be a modern machine, but Woolie’s process was decidedly retro. Rather than start with digital 3D renderings, he shaped a mockup of all the bodywork by hand, using foam. He started with the tank first, then moved forward to the fairing, before completing the tail and lower bits.
?I usually work with aluminum and steel and chromoly and that sort of thing,? says Woolie. ?So it’s the first time I’ve ever been able to just sit down and organically shape something. While doing that, you’re thinking about function, and seating position, and weight distribution, distance to the pegs… all that kind of stuff.?
