The Twelve Days of Breathtaking Builds: Day Seven

Anthony Little |

The Quintessential Mosaic

Up until this point, the Twelve Days has been a celebration of bright, occasionally bombastic, and always beautiful paintwork. Day Seven's bike is a marked departure from the theme, an ode to clean, brutal minimalism, absolutely devoid of pigment. It's a classic raw titanium firestarter: Mosaic's RT-1. Bound for Argentina, this RT-1 has a few special touches that make it sublimely worthy of entrance into the Twelve Days of Breathtaking Builds.

Subtle contrast. Simple aesthetics. Brushed and etched metal, standing on its own.

Will raw titanium ever go out of style? It's like asking if the shape of the Porsche 911 ever will - an easy answer: No.
