UNION GT – ROYAL ENFIELD

The story of the Union GT began when our good friend Kevan decided to dip a toe into the world of two wheeled wonderment. "Let's call it a mild mid-life crisis – when two forty-somethings pass their bike test for the hell of it". Mid-life maybe, we prefer to call it rekindling your inner adolescence.    

After riding a Continental GT scrambler for a few years Kevan was well and truly bitten by the bike bug, "Having loved this bike, I wanted more power and something newer and different”. To follow his petrol drenched desires, he ordered a new GT Continental 650 but Instead of a scrambler, Kevan wanted a cafe racer. “Something slick but classic". 

What started as some minor cosmetic changes to the rear end quickly blew out to a full blown custom, which is a pretty common occurrence in the bike altering industry. Kevan had a vision for the seat and knew he wanted the frame cut down, but the rest – well, the rest Kevan has to thank Jeremy for. “The boys at Deus always had options throughout the build and kept adding value all the way through”. The result; well, just take a look and see for yourself.
Woolaway, who had first encountered the Zero Motorcycles Race Team engineers at the 98th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb competition in Colorado Springs last summer, was immediately enamored with the platform and began to plan a custom build using a Zero electric motorcycle.

“When I met the guys out at Pike's Peak and really got a good look at the bike I thought, that bike is the perfect platform to build something with because there's no gas tank and there's this trellis frame that's beautiful and everything else comes off and there's nothing there,” Woolaway said. “So in my mind quietly, I was thinking, I'd love to do something with that bike because it's a blank sheet of paper.”
