Splach’s Transformer was born out of a crowdfunding campaign and, beyond the multi-purpose utility of the vehicle, offers customization as its calling card. The body panels can be swapped out to suit your preferred style — you can cycle between long and short stems, and even the foot pegs can be replaced with larger ones. All in all, the design really does live up to its name.
