Bandit 9 Customs led by Daryl Villanueva introduced its second project the “Magnus”, it showcases a color that can’t be replicated by other shops. He took a blowtorch and lit the tank, frame and fork on fire, an organic pattern is left on the metal after cleaning off the burnt outer layer. Overall the tank looks like a giant pebble, when all the pieces are assembled together the Magnus looks like it was carved from stone. The seat doubles as the back fender and also gives a swift look, the smaller custom air filters give the bike’s profile a nice void. I love the short chrome exhaust.
