The Kawasaki W650 was my motorcycle of choice when I made the decision to build my own Cafe Racer. The custom work of Deus Ex Machina on Kawasaki's legendary parallel twin was a huge influence on my decision to go with the W650, so you can imagine my excitement each time I see a freshly customised one roll out of their workshop. This latest interpretation of the Kawasaki W650 in Cafe Racer guise was built at the Deus "Emporium Of Post Modern Activities" in Venice, CA and is named the Fiddler.
I'm not going to say I love everything about the W650 Fiddler because that'd make me a liar. I like a low slung headlight nestled between the forks, a front guard that stops the mud from coating my inner thighs and paint job that doesn't resemble my Grandmas butt (wrinkle paint belongs on Harleys). Regardless of these few nitpicks which all come down to personal taste, the Fiddler is another great example of how flexible the Kawasaki W650 is when it comes to customization, which is why I dig it so much!
