Custom VTM Spacester looks like something out of Tron Legacy. The man behind the beast isn’t Jeff Bridges, but rather Bernard ‘Buck’ Massart of the French custom motorcycle shop VTM (V-Twin Mechanic).
Once this was done he extended the heat-sink fins to join the cylinders and give the engine a unique and very clean look. Bernard then set about hand fabricating a frame from scratch, ensuring it flowed seamlessly from front to back
He also created engine/transmission covers to maintain the minimalist look of the drivetrain. The front end came straight off of a Yamaha R1 (shortened by 3 inches) and those front rim mounted discs were hand-made.
