machine1867 transforms a KTM 620 enduro into a custom bobber


sydney-based edi buffon, also known as machine1867, turned a KTM enduro bike into a bobber stripped down to the essentials. Inspired by the ace motorcycle styling of the 1920s, edi took a 2000 model KTM 620 LC4 enduro bike and designed a new frame to accommodate its engine and wheels.

“I thought I could do something with this engine, so I bought it” edi buffon said exif bike. “I was working on another project at the time, so he stayed in the corner of my studio to collect dust until I was ready. I prepped the engine and tried cranking it to see if there were any issues I needed to fix. to my surprise, it started on the third kick. Confident that the low mileage engine was healthy, I started the teardown.

The KTM 620 custom enduro bobber is equipped with the LC4 single cylinder engine placed on a rigid steel frame with a 35º rake and a wheelbase of 1500 mm. the front part pays homage to the ace bike by being rigid. “It had to be a stiff front end, just like the ace that first inspired me,” he continued. “It was a fairly straightforward process and when it was finished the play was watched.”

an aluminum tank sits under the top tube of the rigid frame, just like on its model machine. the one on the left contains the fuel while the one on the right contains all the electrical components. the bike is fitted with the original brembo brake system but only on the front wheel. the seat, as well as the springs, continue to be added to the reference as.

“Reassembling this bike has been the easiest and most enjoyable so far, perhaps due to the simplistic approach”, he concluded. “Now it’s time to deal with some exaggerated, challenging and frustrating new build! “
