Stein, Eisen und Dreck / Chris Zernia


This is a fully functioning motorcycle with stone bodywork. It’s a 1982 Honda CX500 modified by Chris Zernia, who lives in Mendig, Germany, and is clearly one wave short of a shipwreck. The bike is Zernia’s entry into the charmingly-named Build da Fukker contest run by the German magazine Custombike. The stone is basalt, mined from the Eifel mountain range a few kilometres away from Zernia’s house. Basalt is a dense volcanic rock, and rather heavy, but it can be shaped relatively easily — via Bike EXIF
