This bike was created for a very special person, consequently the bike itself should not be too "special", already is its user.
We then created an object that does not give too much attention, it was discreet and elegant but subtly extravagant.
As often happens in these cases, the object originates from a particular which gives the "LA" to all, in this case the wheels are in 144 provenance rays Indonesian, from these we go for the overall project, using an aluminum frame hand made in Italy and a fork "MTB old school" reinterpreted.
Very important, driveability / usability has been enhanced to the maximum, with a single gear ratio, but just for the comfortable departures for good
only on the front brake and the freewheel to the rear.
The painting course required many hands of paint and several attempts to find the right balance between visibility and elegance, but we're sure you turn on a bike so it will be a pleasure for its lucky owner!
A classic reissued in a modern post / Atomic!
Created for and with "Officine Riunite Milanesi" from a Kawasaki ZXR 1100, "Lamaialona" It is a deliberately strong design studio on a very simple basis.
Tired of the same interpretations in key Cafè Racer, Scrambler o Hypster, we opted for an interpretation that would allow us to do both formal experimentation both of techniques and materials used.
The initial idea was a bike in Stealth Style, literally "stealth, clandestinely", We then tried to apply this concept to a national typical military means or otherwise road, of course we focused on the typical square shape of this design, on sharp edges and on the technical nature of the global design. also from "jargon" military have inherited the performance of all types of soils, from pure off-road to the runway, equipping the means of a highly efficient cycling system, replacing suspensions, wheels and braking system. The latter has been realized ad hoc according to our design from "Discacciati Brake System" Thank you for joining us in this trial involving, always with the highest standards of reliability and safety criteria, a component so exclusively technical and functional as the braking system.
A motorcycle show and the Futa Pass
The bike is designed as a whole as an element of design research for future motorcycle trends both of mass production but also of private interpretation staff, we believe the result of this experiment is certainly positive, we saw that you can produce a half from the strong mechanical characterization without appearing a Rat-bike or an old tractor just emerged from years of lethargy in a barn. The result however is a bike that is very well suited for both heavy duty use, as an excursion long haul, or a ride in the hills or one stressful Futa Pass. But at the same time you can use "Lamaialona" as a daily means of transport or as a simple motion "bar".
Lamaialona was realized with the help of modern 3D design and printing systems. The first step was to bring the bike on your computer, so here we proceeded to the three-dimensional scanning as soon as the half came in the workshop, the time to remove all the superstructures and 5 minutes we had a beautiful cloud of points which allowed us to proceed to the design with a full big picture.
Once we defined the style we started with the implementation of the various parties. In the first instance we have used our 3D printers to verify that the parts were assembled correctly.
The bike was then created with a mixture of techniques, digital design and more practical manuals. After scanning all the pieces they were designed in 3D, but then the aluminum sheet metal parts have been cut out and welded by hand, All plastic parts instead are designed based on criteria of feasibility in the CNC for future reproductions and then implemented using FDM 3D printing. At that point a good coat of paint and here the pieces ready for installation.
The fairing instead was made from a single block of aluminum 6061 via CNC milling, this in order to obtain a very often without the classic defect of thin gauge sheet metal edge with exposed edge.
The whole bike has been designed based on criteria of relevance perfect homologation, therefore it is perfectly "code compliant" according to EC DIRECTIVES (2002/24/THIS). All the lights are approved and positioned geometrically correct position, the same applies for license plate and all other accessories shown. Similarly the mechanical parts are ready to positively overcome the homologation tests related (tank, tripod etc.).
A Cepheid is a young giant star that pulsates regularly changing its brightness in a regular cycle stremamente.
Their high brightness makes Cepheid stars the standard parameter to measure the distance of globular clusters and galaxies.
Our VUN as Cepheid is a reference in the motorcycle world for its timelessness and unparalleled.
An exercise in exquisite elegance motorcycle. the CR&S VUN is a special and exclusive motorcycle, hand-built by a small Milan renowned motorcycle manufacturer in the world for his creations exclusive and refined performance. Built in only 50 specimens, mounting a frame assembly trellis Mixed steel tubes with aluminum plates 7075 milled from solid atelier Rhizome. The standard suspension offer high performance while remaining linked to a traditional constructive schema. The front fork, realized by Paioli, It is the only one of its class to have a traditional configuration combined with a considerable diameter and radial attachment of the front caliper for single disc. The rear shock absorber instead is mounted in a horizontal position above the wheel with direct attack, very stiff and sporty. The engine is a Rotax 652cc single-cylinder that offers so much torque and 54 horses tree.
Everything has voted to keep the weight and then exaggerate the pleasure and driving precision. In this sense, the superstructures are minimized and realized with the most noble materials such as hand-wrought aluminum for the tank and carbon for automotive body parts.
Come ex-Lead designer in CR&S, no other, better Donato Cannatello and its present motorcycle engineering teams GIVEN, They could work on the reconstruction of a motorcycle so important and exclusive.
Work on VUN saw a complete reconstruction “frame-off”, where the bike was broken up in every piece to remove the original paint of the chassis and the engine and go to work with abundance on the swingarm and the important details but hidden. For this purpose all machined and finished parts have been treated with procedures as natural as possible so as to preserve the mechanical characteristics of each piece, then the frame has been wet with a very light coating of nickel that will protect the surface from oxidation while the aluminum parts were hand-brushed so as to leave exposed the noble material.
The rebuilding process has affected many small details of the bike, some redesigned and reconstructed using the CAD for steel CNC techniques, aluminum and ABS, but also with more 3D printing techniques for plastic parts.
All changes are aimed at maintaining the excellent details and functionality of this already fantastic bike, its engine, his performances and the high specialization of the constructive method. The engine and the air intake system have remained substantially the same in order to preserve the structural characteristics and especially homologative. In this way the “body-kit” It can be universally used on similar motion.
Great effort has been employed instead of updating the swingarm, mounting a double arm in die-cast aluminum, bolted with a central plate that has reported the geometric characteristics of the original quota, thus allowing to preserve the excellent chassis of the bike.
For a bike so special we opted for an intervention “aggiornativo” keeping the important characteristics and improving those in CR&S could not care for reasons of cost to the public.
The result is a highly recognizable bike but with a strong personality and elegance, which preserves both performance and exclusivity that possibility of daily use. We love it.
