Doesn’t look like the usual SR250’s you see on the road, does it? No siree. This bad boy was recently built for the Metamorfosis Masiva — which is a SR250 build-off in Spain where you can’t spend more than €1,000 on parts. Although, there was no limit on the amount of hours they could spend building, and that’s what D.B from El Solitario MC did. Spending more than 500 hours creating this one-of-a-kind motorcycle. The bike, which D.B has named ‘The Winning Loser’ didn’t win, but ironically it has probably gained the most attention, being posted on numerous motorcycle blogs around the world and therefore living up to its name.
