Humans tend to be inspired by others and when this ‘law of nature’ applies to the custom motorcycle scene, you have to admit that most custom bikes turn out looking pretty ordinary. Yes. I know it is weird. They are customs and should look like no other, but that’s how the way it is today. Perhaps, customising two-wheeler is much like fashion: whatever’s fashionable will be borrowed. That, plus regulatory laws kind of limits what customisers hope and want to achieve. However, one part time builder from Sweden Marcus Carlsson is determined not to be bounded by rules and sets out to create custom two-wheelers on his own terms. Yes. Probably the police will not be too amused, but who cares when this Honda Tracker look this awesome?
Marcus’ one-of-a-kind Honda Tracker started life as a 2006 Honda CRF450 and after countless hours spent outside of his full-time work and family commitment, and in the progress, getting lesser sleep than he should, it became this stunning ride you see before you. Seriously, if this bike didn’t tickle your fancy, I don’t know what will. Anywho, Marcus basically reworked the entire thing – everything from the paint to the modified FMX exhaust to the various carbon fiber body panels, he did it all. He even enlisted the help of technologies, namely, CAD program NX and 3D printing, to realize the bike that until then only existed in his brilliant mind.
The result is apparent; it was amazing work of art, a bike that is as minimalistic as motorcycle can be while not sacrificing performance and ride comfort… hold on, maybe ‘comfort’ is not at the top of Marcus’ mind, as you can see, this awesome Arctic White stallion has no seat. Then again, I am sure if you love what you see, you wouldn’t mind either. I know, I surely won’t. Performance parts and sound engineering aside, it is obvious Marcus did paid special attention to aesthetic too cos this Honda Tracker is beyond just good looking; it is crazy stylish.
