Federal Moto’s Shaun Brandt is one of the rising stars of the custom scene, and he’s wowed us with several of his builds already. But when he wanted a bike for himself, he turned elsewhere—to Mike Muller of Chicago’s Powder Monkees.
It’s an odd collaboration, but it’s worked out beautifully. Shaun’s now got himself a slim, maneuverable SR500 that works on both tight city streets and cruisy beach boulevards.
Shaun is originally from Canada, but he’s just moved to the sunnier climes of Miami, Florida. “Being able to ride all year round is a dream come true, after coming from a city with a three- or four-month safe riding reason,” he says.
