Posts Tagged ‘Deus ex Machina Camperdown’

Deus Ex Machina (Latin: “god from the machine”) is a motorcycle emporium in the inner-Sydney suburb of Camperdown.

Located in the old Oddbins site (now I’m really showing my age), the company specialises in customised motorcycles, but their Sydney headquarters offers so much more than that.  The large space houses a workshop, a bustling café, and a shop selling bikes, surfboards and clothing.

We had planned to pop in for lunch, but ended up spending a couple of hours in the shop instead – Pete bought clothes, while I took photos with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone.

I had fun experimenting with the different black and white settings…

The entrance to the workshop is at the top left of the photo…

Just for fun, a grainy black and white Hipsta combination (Buckhorst and US 1776)…

All the motorcycles were gleaming and polished…

I’d never realised how beautiful they could be…

The colour photos were taken with Hipstamatic’s new Wonder lens and W40 film, which seemed a good match for the ambiance of the store…

I have an appalling weakness for boots, but didn’t buy any…

…nor did Pete buy a $700 vintage leather jacket, although he had fun trying some of them on…

The range is wide and eclectic, extending to brightly coloured toy robots and expensive funky sunglasses…

Deus Ex Machina is a fabulous place to visit – whether for a meal, to shop, or just to admire the motorcycles.  At the moment, their winter clothing range is 50% off – Pete bought a great oilskin jacket and wool shirt.

Oh, and because my Latin scholar son was so appalled by my initial pronunciation of Deus Ex Machina, here is a YouTube video on how it should sound.  Big Boy wouldn’t let me go into the store until I’d learnt to say it properly!
