Deus Ex Machina Open on Venice Blvd in Los Angeles

Can’t wait for this store to open. Custom motorcycles with surfboard racks, custom retro surfboards and single speed bikes. These guys just make and sell things they want in their own shed.

Their nearest competition will be Surfing Cowboys, about 1 mile away on Abbot Kinney Blvd but they don’t sell bikes. You’ll have to go to Bartel’s Harley Davidson further up Lincoln for one of those. Nearest single speed store would be LA Brakeless on Venice. The Deus site says the Venice location (AKA The House of Thump) will have a workshop and Stumptown coffee. Nice maneuver, Venice is screaming out for another good cafe.


Coming Soon : Deus Ex Machina LA

Future Deus Ex Machina Custom Motorcycle Cafe Location

I’ve snooped around the outside but you can’t see inside, looks like some construction but no indication on when it will open. The site, 1001 Venice Blvd on the corner of Venice and Lincoln, in Venice, used to be a Florist and has had that ‘Deus Postmodern Activities’ sign up for at least a year now… It’s about a 15 minute walk from the beach. At their Sydney store they run some surfboard swap meets in the vacant lot opposite. They also have another store in Bali with a cafe, custom Indonesian bikes and a cool blog.
