Thrive MC continues to blow me away with how much their skillset and creativity evolves over each build. I really dig their integration of modern design touches, like the attention to logos and branding. Each bike gets it's own identity. The T009 was built for a friend of theirs who owns a tattoo shop called Thinking Tree. The parlor's logo can be seen on the left side of the tank. The bike's theme was derived from the movie District 9, meaning it's intent was to be raw, utilitarian and futuristic. Details like the tail light with it's pill-shaped open reflector definitely drive that super-future vibe home. The mesh fairing guard with spray painted numbering is reminiscent of the military vehicles seen in the flick. It's a great blend of styles and I think they really nailed it. That tank top view is certainly desktop worthy.
