Good and bad was the driving motivation behind this highly original bike from Thrive Motorcycles. They wanted to create a ride that could handle the worst of roads while looking like a stunning piece of art in the process. They succeeded. Starting with a 1984 Yamaha Scorpio, the team used a a sheet of aluminum to cut weight and give the bike a base for its grey/black palette. They tossed on a custom stainless steel exhaust, some Rental Fatbar handlebars, and a custom dash with phone mount that looks like a handheld Xbox prototype. A custom skid-plate, Kenda Trial Tread tires, and new brakes were added for roads that appear post-apocalyptic. It would look at home in a dystopian future and on display at a modern art museum.
