The donor is a 1980s XT600 and the brief was to create an “unusual, rough, hybrid bike which you can both use as an urban traveler but also in the field.” After stripping the bike the guys set about changing the lines by chopping the rear sub-frame for the must-have seat transformation, but rather than fitting a tank with smooth retro lines, like an XT, they switched it out for an XL, with it’s exaggerated, bulbous lines. The wheels were swapped out for 18-inchers to give the bike more agility, fitted with purposeful chunky Heidenau tyres. A new seat pan was matched to the chopped subframe while rough real leather was used for the seat. Left hand cycles.

Piaggio ciao Rat moped


This is a Rat moped project in Uroš Štrubelj style. He bought this oldy for a daily ride to his job and back. He likes old rusty rolling things so the rat style was a reasonable choice. All together was an experiment and all the colours he used ware sitting in his garage. At the junk yard he found the head lamp and handlebar, he bought a new tires, custom draw a white line/wall on them, and he added shiny exhaust. He needed a place for keys, wallet and other pocket stuff, so he built out of bare metal sheets a cool boxes and placed them on the rack. For the final touch he made two little tears for the fenders and added big horns. The horns are so funny, Uroš like them a lot.


Once at the local market store older man saw this rat machine and wanted to bought it. Uroš said no, so hi said it’s a really nice old moped and do not, do not paint it, he really believe that it’s an old rusty ride. Uroš was excited. But after all he sold this little rat and bought a scooter. He has a plans for that plastic thing too, a Mad Max style, but like we all he has no over time to start the project. Uroš we are waiting, take the time machine in your hands and build something for your soul and also for us!!
