Those guys at Deus don't waste any time do they? The Japanese home of the Deus empire just pulled the curtains on its newest project, a custom Honda called the Malachi Crunch. Based on a Honda XL500, the shop went to town and crated a bike that's ready for the street and a monster on the dirt. 

The bike keeps its engine, main frame, and twin shocks, but gets a number of upgrades. That includes XR600 forks, KX 250 front hub, tweaked rear suspension geometry, custom swing arm, K&N pod filters, and more. A carefully repainted tank and vintage racing plastic add a finishing touch.
