Original look of the Brought Superior (BSS)
This build was unique and challenging, like any MM project, but we threw all the passion we had into this, as we do with every project we take on. Pierre came to us and asked us to build him his idealistic “childhood dream” motorcycle. His directions were very clear, telling us to “do whatever you want on it, but make me feel like Lawrence of Arabia.” The task was set, and we were ready to get going!
From the very beginning, it was such a blessing to have the chance to build this bike for Pierre. We love classics in all forms, so Pierre’s vision of his Lawrence of Arabia motorcycle struck a chord with us. It is with no doubt in our best movies of all-time list!
The creation of this bike was a tough process, but very rewarding, as always. We learned a lot during the transformation process, and we are extremely proud of the final product. Pierre’s vision came true, and we are so pleased to have made this happen for him. We hope that Mr Lawrence would like it, just as much as we all do!
The total time spent building this bike was 120 days.
Enjoy the view.
Final Look of our Yamaha SCORPIO BSS Replica
Once we got our hands on the donor motorcycle and took off all the plastic, we discovered how much work needed to be done. Despite the evident engine placement and design issues, we had to rework a completely new frame and subframe, as well as build a new tank and change its position as well.
We created a hardtail motorcycle out of a mono-shock soft tail – which is an impressive feat! Finally, we also created several new parts, covers and a tank in aluminium.
We decided to design a two-seater concept, so the motorcycle is not only looking beautifully crafted, but it’s also comfortable, functional and practical for long term daily use. In addition to this, we added side bags for longer rides and comfortable handle bars, which creates a unique riding experience.
This full transformation required a very close look at not only the general concept, but also to the smallest of details, which we take great pride in.

HOW CAN I GET A MALAMADRE ?
Customising a motorcycle is creating art, and we take great pride in being the artists of your visions.
Your motorcycle created by us will be unique and no one in the world will have one the same. All our motorcycles are tailor-made and based on our individual but recognizable MM style, the price is in many cases higher than a new motorcycle of origin. The waiting time from us receiving or purchasing the donor motorcycle, to having it ready to ride, is at an average of 2 months. Of course, this time frame will vary depending on your vision.
We feel the most passion for motorcycles with soul and unique character. Most of our builds are influenced and inspired by the classic and vintage style of motorcycles. The MM style is well renowned for bringing not only custom motorcycles but unique looks, quality, reliability and dynamics to the motorcycle scene too.
If you are interested in building a custom motorcycle with us you can send us this form, or visit our headquarters in Canggu, Bali. All projects are discussed fully to ensure we understand your concept and can begin building your dream custom motorcycle. The project is then agreed on between both parties.
Once the deal is closed a 60% payment upfront must be paid. The remaining 40% must be paid at delivery,
If you want a drawing or photoshop of your project the cost will be 500 US$, and if a final agreement is signed it will be discounted from the final price.
Since we opened, we have worked mainly with Yamaha, Honda and Suzuki motorcycles from 125cc all the way up to 1300cc. We have also worked with Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, KTM and many more brands.
Our prices (including donor motorcycles) are on average around 5000 US$. These are general prices and based on our recent experience. Since every motorcycle is unique and personalised, this price is just approximate and will depend on labour hours and parts used. If you are wanting to build a bike with us, but you’re not based in Bali, the transport oscillates between 1.000 US$ to 2.000$.
In order to acquire one of our bikes there are several different options:
- You can deliver a donor motorcycle to us to start a project.
- We can source a donor motorcycle for you and start a project.
- You can acquire one of our stock builds.
- You can jump on an ongoing project.
