Yamaha XV 750 frame and engine thats where the standard bike stops.
This bike has been modifed with GSX-r 750 forks, Honda NTV 650 single sided swing arm.
This bike has always drawn alot of attention and nick named the "armadillo bike" due to the handmade custom fenders.
This bike was purchased from a Custom Cafe motorcycle builder in Europe, imported into the UK where it has been registered and further modifications continued.
The engine was stripped down, cylinders honed and
- new piston rings
- camshaft re ground by newman cams
- small end bearings
- big end bearings
- oil pump
- replacement crankshaft
Once the engine was re assembled the whole unit was prepared and blasted to offer a unqiue aluminium finish.
Carburettors were stripped, vapour blasted with new rebuild kits and re chroming to the brackets.
Fully re wired with the use of motogadget m-unit, minature m button controls along with the reverse levers make the handle bars feel completely orignal.
A fully restored mechanical German war time clock is centrally mounted to add to the retro look.
An extensive amount of fabrication from the custom lights to the re-use of a vintage motorcycle headlight which was restored and modified to suit the look of this one off motorcycle.
No keys needed to start this bike, a discreetly positioned RFID ignition lock brings this bike to life!
Powered by a Shorai Lithium ion battery and ultizing aircraft resetable fuses enables for a minimalist look.
The tank was custom painted by Scott at Custom Exotics.
No expense has been spared in manufacturing this bike.
This has been a road bike however more recently it has on display in a private dwelling as their centre piece. This was prepared for sale with an MOT carried out in November 2021, however was recommissioned to remain on display for a futher 6 months.
This is honestly a wonderful bike just to admire, the hours involved in each bespoke component is nothing short of extraordinary.
I would be delighted to see this cafe racer move onto the next owner who can apreciate it as much as I have. I am currently working on another XV however the 920 this time.
