Sticky Bandit

Every man, deep in his high-octane heart, has seen a motorcycle sitting curbside — aggressively curved chassis, gleaming steel bowels — and been intrigued by the pantherian sex appeal of it all.

But you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Have a look at the two-wheeled whips dreamed up by Bandit9, a wildly innovative custom bike garage now taking orders.

Based in Singapore and Saigon, B9 (motto: “We’re pirates, not sailors”) builds high-concept, muscular bikes.

Very well-designed. Like kinetic sculptures on the road.


Two models currently for pre-sale:

EVE, a chrome unibody based off the classic 1967 Honda Super Sport … but aesthetically veering in the direction of Tron.

The cool, carbonized Nero MKII, featuring a custom gas tank, rear cowl, handlebars, foot-pegs and curved dual exhausts. And inspired by H.R. Giger.

Each concept bike is extremely small batch (there are only nine MKIIs, for example).

But, good news: for those who don’t want in, limited edition prints of the bikes are now available for your wall.

Call it a motor-vational poster.
