While I was in Sydney for the WTAC, a mate introduced me to Deus Ex Machina’s Temple of Enthusiasm in Camperdown. I grew up racing dirt bikes so I have always had an appreciation for our 2-wheeled cousins, but these guys have taken the passion to a whole new level.
In their own words, Deus is a completely different kind of motorcycle company. While focussing on the design and construction of custom motorcycles, Deus promotes and celebrates a custom motorcycle culture that first appeared in Europe and America in the 1940s which has recently been revived by groups of young enthusiasts in Japan, America and Australia.
While the sale of motorcycles and parts is at the core of the business – from Yamaha SR400s and TW220s to Kawasaki W650s as well as a selection of signifigant classic bikes, visitors to the Deus showroom will find hand built fixed gear track bicycles and a range of Deus brand clothing and luggage as well as a range of items which feature timeless design and reflect the Deus culture.
Whether your into bikes or not, this place is seriously worth a visit.
