Birmingham bike institution MUTT MOTORCYCLES spin into 2019 with the release of the SUPER 4… A Muttified slant on the current trend of customising 70’s Japanese classics with a groovy paint job to boot.
Birmingham’s custom motorcycle chop shop The House of Mutt present something slightly different for their next 125. They advise that the SUPER 4, is for “the beautiful freaks and edgy nostalgics”. It features a striking 70s Boogie Nights inspired fuel tank, which comes in eye-popping blue or gold micro-flake throwing back to the original superbikes from the land of the rising sun.
They say, “That doesn’t mean this bike is style over substance though. It bears all the hallmarks of a House of Mutt original, 18” big nobbly tires, diamond pattern low profile seat and a stainless steel exhaust system which emits that unmistakable deep thump that you will only hear from a Mutt”.
To uphold their custom vibe they have opted for a narrow chrome bar and black diamond pattern grips, plus a shortened rear aluminium mudguard which is finished in raw satin. The bulletproof, four-stroke motor is housed within their own twin shock tube frame and is fuel-injected for that extra smooth bit of poke.
Head of The House and chief of customisation Benny Thomas explains how the SUPER 4 is unique; ‘’The styling idea behind the Super 4 was to create a bike that echoes the current movement of customising 70s Japanese classics, except we want that feel straight out the gate without the headaches of working on old bikes. The Super 4 paint is a custom slant on the 70s factory paint jobs and of course the fat tyres, short aluminium mudguards and all the other parts that make up the Super 4 help give this little thumper a solid custom built vibe.’’
The House of Mutt’s slabs of heavy metal from Birmingham can count some of the countries biggest creators as part of the club, bikes currently belonging to no less than; Tom Hardy (Actor), Reggie Yates (Entertainer/Documentarian), James May (The Grand Tour/Presenter) Skin (Musician/Skunk Anansie), Ben Ransom (Rugby), Iwan Thomas (Athlete), Rob Halliday (Musician/The Prodigy) and Lee Malia (Musician/Bring Me The Horizon).
Mutt says, “If a super cool customised 70’s machine is your bag then let Mutt do the hard work and get your ass on one of their Mutt Super-4’s. Available for Pre-Order NOW!”
