Michael Woolaway has one primary mission for the bikes he works on – he wants them to go and go well! Working out of Woolie’s Workshop in Venice, California, the flagship store of Deus Ex Machina, he has once again created motorcycle artistry with the TTT.
He began with a 1978 Triumph T140 sporting a 750cc engine. After being ported, polished, and upgraded, the engine was mounted on a C&J hand-made custom frame. The wishbone section of the oil-in-frame backbone supports a central monoshock. The long aluminum tank and seat cowl were also made by hand by Wollie himself and were based on 1960’s Japanese Grand Prix Racer styles. A custom stainless steel exhaust fitted with a Cone Engineering megaphone makes the bike sound like “pure nirvana.”
This classy 2-wheeler sports top-shelf bits such as the Mikuni TM34-2 flatside carbs, Motogadget control units and gauges, LSL clip-on bars, Ohlins forks, and a Beringer 6 piston front caliper. All this sits on matching 17″ Bridgestone BT45 tires wrapped around the tubeless spoke wheels. The Deus Ex Machina TTT is beautiful, powerful, and, as Woolaway likes it, ready to go!Learm More From Deus Customs
