ACHUMA

Achuma was engineered to be strong and reliable, built for a lifetime of use.  The raw metal bronze finish of the frame will change, darken and naturally patina with life.   The raw aluminum sheet metal will take on different shades as it oxidizes and the owner re-cleans and re-polishes it.   The weld joints in the stainless parts will change color with time.  Dirt and oil will find its way in and live in those hard to clean places.  Achuma was built with the intention that age would set in.  That the battle scars of real road use would take their place and give spirit to the machine. Achuma will never be the same, always slightly changing.  The key is that with these changes the owner holds an experience and memory.  It is why someone has Kraus Motor Co. build them a machine like Achuma.  Just for the experience.
