While the large-volume engine is clearly the focal point in Departed, there’s no missing Custom Works Zon’s distinctive classic styling that somehow seamlessly combines modern production techniques and a ridiculously high level of craftsmanship and detail. The solid aluminum girder fork is an undeniable nod to the past but with a more modern sweep, and the bike’s low, thin silhouette looks like it could have been pulled right out of the late 1920s and 1930s. Those beautifully spoked 21-inch front and 26-inch rear wheels, both fairly narrow, add to the spaced-out feel. Look closely, and you’ll see that the steel swingarm is attached to the tubular frame via concealed (but robust) suspension; the massive engine is suspended in that frame and reinforced with tubes. Of course these guys always put in a fair amount of craftsmanship into their builds, and here it’s the fuel tank, seat, and front trim that get the handmade treatment, all from sheet metal.
