Today, we are thrilled to present the first build from MadWolf Motorcycles, a workshop in Bordeaux, France. The founder, an aerospace engineer, started building motorcycles three years ago. However, this build — his first — had to take a back seat when the customer who’d bought the bike told him he couldn’t pay for it.
MadWolf concentrated on other customer builds before finally finishing this one. We love the small touches like the durite aviation — “aviation hose” — and the XT500 aluminum tank with customized MadWolf paint. Below, we get the full story on “MWM1.”
Honda NX650 RD02 Scrambler: In the Builder’s Words
This is a story of me and my first bike with the MadWolf name.
I’m an aerospatial quality engineer but I’m passionate about everything with a motor, so when I was unemployed, I decided to make my creativity free on a bike. It was the start of a long project of mounting a garage…
So I bought the Honda dominator (1990) at 300kms from Paris, and I started to draw what I want after watching a lot of modified motorcycles. It was in 2015, three years ago, and it took a while because of many things.
I had to move to Angouleme for a job and now I’m working in Bordeaux since two years. I sold this project two years ago for a customer, but he told me almost six months later he has no money for it. During all this time, I had others customers to make others bikes so I didn’t touch the Dominator. But last six months I finished the bike by simplifying the electrical wires, restyling the seat and painting the tank.
So the bike now is finished, it’s for sale! Actually, I’m finishing a 1980 Suzuki DR400S and a 1980 R100 RS. I have a new customer for a street tracker Honda Dominator too, and as my work is being enjoyed, I’m happy to keep my goal to make my own professional garage!
