Gasoline went all out on this custom scrambler: we stripped down the tank, rebuilt the engine, commissioned new custom paint work, crafted a custom exhaust, did a massive tail tidy and more. Starting from an almost completely blank slate meant that our team could shape every aspect of the build.

The blacked out engine was completely rebuilt from scratch, salvaging as much of the original components to powdercoat black. Brand new parts were sourced from all over the web - like the blood red chain - to make sure that this motorcycle rides just as good as it looks. It took a decent amount of tweaking and test riding back and forth to really nail the feel and make sure that the engine growled just the way it should.

A completely custom exhaust was shaped and fabricated with tracker styling in mind, to fit around the engine in a more refined way than the stock pipes. It follows the contour of the underside and shows how every aspect of the build was carefully considered. The black wrap, while helping with the thump sound of the exhaust, makes sure it ties in visually with the overall blacked out colour scheme of the engine and frame.

 The centrepiece of the build is obviously the tank, its unique finish means it stands out strongly against the rest of the blacked out machine with it’s rugged, roughed up texture and crisp, hand painted script. There was no trickery involved, it was simply stripped and sanded then left to sit in the rain for a week to get that authentic rusted look. Gasoline’s head technician made sure to grind a decent amount of the original paint off while strategically leaving a small amount on either side to allow for the custom script. The original ‘Cartel’ signature was expertly painted by a local commissioned artist and provides the final sign off on build, removing any doubt about whose ride this is.
