Bandit9 Hephaestus Motorcycle
Hephaestus is the latest creation by Daryl Villanueva and his band of pirates at Beijing-based garage, Bandit9. They named the bike, Hephaestus, in honor of the Greek God of blacksmiths, craftsmen, sculptors and artisans.
An evolution of the 1988 Honda Bros 400, Bandit9 shed the bike’s original plastic exterior and refitted it with a more modern aesthetic; sporting an armor-like exoskeleton forged from steel. There’s nothing soft about the bike, except for maybe hand stitched black leather seat. The tank, gas cap, cowl, side covers and fender were all handcrafted from stainless steel.
