There’s something very interesting happening over at Saint Motorbikes. Bozi’s latest custom motorcycle build is taking shape and it’s going to be a real head turner.

The motorcycle started life as a 1972 OIF (oil in frame) Triumph and looks to be developing in to a mix of Cafe Racer and steam punk styling. The bike is named Tesla after Nikola Tesla, the inventor/electrical engineer that paved the way for the development of AC power systems and was often referred to as a mad scientist.

The Tesla has a fully custom built tank and tail welded together from separate sheets of  steel which give the bike it’s steam punk looks. The twin exhausts wrap around and up under the seat which is a design feature of many other Saint Motorbikes. Bozi also seems to have added a mad invention of his own to the exhaust which gives it the ability to shoot flames out the back (nice touch).

Tasteful use of Brass and Copper also set off the Steam Punk look a nice low stance gives the bike real attitude. The last time I saw a bike that excited me this much was Chris Flechtners, Beezerker which took 5th place at the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in 2010.

I can’t wait to see how the Tesla will look when it’s completed. Check out Saint Motorbikes Blog for a look at their XS650 and Ural Cafe Racer projects and a Honda Goldwing custom build.
