James may's sr400

An iconic Deus custom previously owned by Mr james may

The Deus Grievous Angel is a Deus Ex Machine-built Yamaha SR400 that’s had a significant influence on the custom scene both in its native Australia and further afield in the USA and Europe.

It was built by Deus in Sydney in 2010, after which it was placed on display in the Powerhouse Museum for a time, it eventually made its way to Britain where it was bought at auction by James May of The Grand Tour (formerly of Top gear fame). May had the Angel on display in his home for a few years before selling it on to fellow collector (and fellow Brit) Joel Roach in London.

The original Yamaha SR400 was a direct replacement for the earlier SR500, which was a street bike that used the engine from the Yamaha XT500 – a motorcycle which won both the Paris-Abidjan-Nice Rally and the iconic Paris-Dakar Rally.
