Some Custom Bikes Are Born On Paper First

Putting ideas to paper before starting on a project helps ideas flow. You can always design on the fly, but having a working sketch to go from helps to carve out a solid representation of the idea at hand. We stumbled across the blog of Darizt Design out of Java Indonesia and then just happened to spend another hour there going over their work. Damn great ideas and really enjoy the DIY attitude.

Darizt Design of Indonesia

Full sketch of bike to work through design ideas
What could be better than a solid blueprint to work from, dig the engineering
Frame sections coming together
Multi section frame, be interested to see how well those bolts hold it all together with flex from the motor's torque
The hidden mono shock is a clever idea for sure!
The bike has a killer stance
Really sweet tank shape with the custom frame
