The colour scheme is a nod to the classic Yamaha livery, and is painted in pearlescent white, with the matching R1 red colour scheme reminiscent of its first generation super-bike. Coupled with the Gold powder coated rims gives it the retro look I was aiming for.
The bike needs to be seen close up, to be appreciated. It rides superbly and has been recently undergone a few shakedown rides. Great bike to stand out from the crowd at your local Sunday Cafe stop. Great fun to ride on the twisty roads, and will sit all day 50-60Mph which is where you want to be on this type of bike. It’s not been thrown together with imported cheap EBay accessories from the Far East, a lot of time and thought went into every little detail, I always build them for myself not on a tight customer’s budget.
The bike was due to exhibit at this year’s Bikeshed Show 2020 in London in May (invitation only), and also qualified for the National Championship category at the Kickback Custom show in July. Sadly both shows have been cancelled because of the Pandemic!! It would be great to attend the shows in 2021 with the new owner
Recently featured by online magazine, Bikebound and described as “….one of the cleanest XS650 trackers we’ve seen”…..
- details above
I’ve got hundreds of pics of the bike during the build and more finished pictures on request, but realistically needs to be seen close up to be appreciated. Its been very well received by everyone who's seen it close up, you'll not be dissapointed. Bike is Tax and MOT exempt, registered as a classic on the V5 which is in my name.
Bank transfer only. I can deliver anywhere in the UK for cost of fuel. Bike is available to view in South Wales, 10mins off J43 of the M4 motorway Any other information you require just message me. Can be crated for overseas shipment at cost. Bank transfer only, no paypal, no cash
Please only message me if you are genuinely interested in the bike.

Thanks for looking
