The motorcycle world has a keen knack for inspiring collaborative efforts. Whether it’s a home-brewed build with friends or something much more refined, two-wheels can kick start camaraderie like nothing else out there. So, it makes sense as to why Buster + Punch teamed up with Mutt Motorcycles to create the LDN Born Mutt Motorcycle.

Quite the contrary, Buster + Punch designs stylish light fixtures, doorknobs, cuff links and lastly, motorcycles. The leap from progressive home design to custom bikes might seem like a Snake River Canyon distance leap, but if you take a closer look at the LDN Born Mutt Motorcycle, I think you’ll begin to see some of the similarities.

So what is LDN Born Mutt Motorcycle? At its base, it is a four-stroke 125cc Mutt Motorcycle that has received a custom finish by the London based Buster + Punch crew both in paint and various metal bits. The bike, which has been limited to a 50 unit run is retailing for £4500 ($6,402 USD). Buster + Punch have a design ethos that pulls from the heart of London’s music and fashion subcultures, and I personally can’t fault anyone for wearing their influences on their sleeves. The LDN Born Motorcycle has certain air to it, one that reflects the country that gave us Punk and New Wave.

Massimo Minale, founder of the design firm behind the build, shared the driving purpose for the bike: “For a long time we’ve wanted to build a custom motorcycle for the every man. This 125cc LDN Born Mutt Motorcycle lets you feel like a rock star, during your daily commute and all for only £4,500”
