fuller moto has built the 2029, a futuristic electric motorcycle with a fully enclosed sculptured aluminum body, hub-centric steering, clear polycarbonate wheels and 3D-printed titanium parts. commissioned by the haas moto museum and sculpture gallery, whose expansive collection includes over 190 unique and one-of-a-kind motorcycles from 1901 to present day, the bike is designed in the style of the french 1929 majestic. in keeping with the aesthetic and character of the original majestic design, the fuller moto team set out 100 years later to create another revolutionary kind of motorcycle with their 2029.

built by bryan fuller and his team at fuller moto in atlanta, georgia, the unconventional 2029 paves the way for next level design elements and intricacies that until today were difficult to hand craft. its chassis components are 3D-printed using light-weight titanium, an ideal material that allows shapes which otherwise would be nearly impossible to hand craft. some key visual elements of the 2029 bike were made from 3D-printed titanium, including the front stabilizer arm outside of the front swing-arm, which captures almost a sword shape look. the steering plate that mounts on the hub up front and mounts the heim joint also has an unusual and unique aesthetic.
fuller used a zero motorcycle FXS electric bike with a range of 100 miles and 78 ft/lbs of torque, as a foundation for the build of the 2029. the length of the zero was the same dimensions of the original majestic, but the motor was a bit low and the batteries too high in the stock chassis. as such, fuller decided to flip the chassis upside down, while the batteries were uniquely modified to be positioned down low so that the motor aligns with the tall, 23-inch wheels.
