Black. The coolest of the colours. If the all the colours in the world got together and had a “who’s most like Steve McQueen” competition, black would have to be respectfully excluded after winning too many years in a row. In fact, it’s so cool that your eyes only register it as black because it’s absorbing pretty much all the light that is falling on it. So that makes it like some sort of pet black hole without all the nasty gravity and the sucking and the killing stuff. Johnny Cash loved it. Young Marlon Brando practically breathed the stuff. It’s the colour of magic, power, evil and elegance. Let’s face it, if you had to choose a single, lonesome colour to make every motorbike that was ever built between now and the end of the world, good old black would be it. And the guy’s at Ellaspede Customs wholeheartedly agree. Their latest creation plumbs new depths of black coolness and as you can see from the photos, there’s just no way you could ever imagine it being painted with anything else.
