Deep in the dark heart of Brooklyn, New York, is Max Hazan’s eponymous Hazan Motorworks shop.

This is where, over a period of two months, Max hand-built this astonishing motorcycle – his take on an Indian-made, late-model Royal Enfield.

“This was the first time that I built everything from scratch. Every lever, linkage, cable… each part was made to been seen.”

We’re looking, Max. And we’re seeing.

It is unlikely you’ll be able to sit on this all the way down the Hume.

Nope. Don’t look any more comfortable from this angle, either.

Every part…every nut…every bolt…spot on.

Like everything else, Max made these.

Max would take a bow, but he might slip off the seat. Bravo, mate. Awesome work.
