Ellaspede is made up of a dedicated team of industrial designers. Owned and operated by Steve Barry and Leo Yip, Ellaspede is a hub for motorcycle culture and creativity. Steve and Leo use traditional and modern automotive design techniques to create their hand crafted machines. Attention to detail and a drive to challenge the norm push their designs.
We have chosen to steer away from the conventional café racer conversion, instead creating a machine that is a blend of many influences.
The design intent of 001 was to develop a motorcycle that infused modern technology and classic styling with a hint of innovation. This is evident in details such as the use of classic bar end levers with a disc brake, LED brake light offset by a handcrafted and polished seat trim and a reversed engineered engine cover, CNC machined to feature the Ellaspede logo.
