[nggallery id=41] You may remember “Little Patina” that we featured in February - well, here’s the latest from builder Tony Prust of Analog Motors, an island tracker called Nomad. Built for owner Rob McAbee of Nomad Design Co., Nomad started out as a 1974 KZ400.
Modifications include a custom seat pan, reworked electronics, bobbed fenders, aftermarket headlight with stone guard along with gorgeous powder coating and custom paint job designed to mimic a curling wave.
Parts were not easy to find so some things had to be modified versions of something similar or had to be custom built such as the battery box under the seat.
The aggressive adventure style tires and scrambler vibe that the bike has are there to accommodate the owner's lifestyle and enable him to get to off-road locations for fly-fishing and surfing. (He has plans of mounting a surfboard rack on it.)
Here's the bike in the shop -
Once again, Prust has demonstrated his growing talent where he combines a great aesthetic and yet includes elements of utilitarianism for the owner's needs. He's turned an older classic into a new ride that enhances the back-roads and beaches of Amelia Island Florida.
