If you’re a connoisseur of either custom builds or vintage bikes, then the name Deus Ex Machina should ring a bell. There aren’t too many garages pushing out the one-of-a-kind two-wheelers Deus Customs has been doing for years, and now, they’ve teamed up with Yamaha to bring you the ultimate in open road riding with this gem, the Yard Build XV950 ‘D-Side’.

The “Stripped Back” styled D-Side draws inspiration from vintage boats which influenced the design of the sidecar itself resulting in a more than impressive boat shape deck at the rear for extra luggage. While the overall design takes cues from an early Deus build, the Brat Style of the Deus SR500 ‘Drover’s Dog’, that influence can be seen through a surf rack fixed between the sidecar and bike, and a stripped back simplified style that shows off the XV’s torquey V-twin motor. Without any cutting or welding, Deus added a custom-made rear frame to raise the seat height, topped off with an alcantara seat unit. A Deus aluminium fuel tank completes the cool lines of the D-Side.

Custom Deus aluminium front and rear fenders complement the tank unit and a 6-piston Deus/Discacciati brake system adds stopping power. And, if those highlights just aren’t enough, how about the addition of an Sc-Project exhaust and Deus custom aluminium air intake and cone filter to add the summer soundtrack as well as MX handlebars and a Motogadget speedometer.
