Custom motorcycle expert Deus Ex Machina has treated us to an in-depth look at one of its earliest and most-loved bikes – the "Bali Dog" beachside cruiser.

The bike, based on a Yamaha Scorpio, was the very first build from Deus Ex Machina's outpost in Bali, Indonesia back in 2008, and has since received a number of different updates. Deus Indonesia head honcho Dustin Humphrey originally stripped the two-stroke bike of its cheaper plastic parts and upgraded them with bespoke fenders and custom fittings to produce a mongrel-like appearance.

For the latest iteration, the "Bali Dog" receives an off-road upgrade for both enduro and mountain usage. An off-market plastic fender, Duro tires, Suzuki TS bars, a vintage lamp, a one-off seat and tank, and a number of performance tweaks give the bike a roaring attitude to complement its sleek and sexy, matte black aesthetic. Perfect for exploring Indonesia's black sand slopes, temples and beaches.

Head over to Deus Ex Machina's website for the full profile.
