Old school racer built from a Yamaha 1980 XS 650 platform. After replacing the frame backbone, the bike was stretched 5″. The exhaust system was conceived to be as discreet as possible to avoid visual distraction from the overall bike lines. Although the pipes exit below the frame, they are hidden in a one-piece stainless steel box. To reinforce the minimalistic look of the Yamaha, a pair of Invader wheels were mounted and dressed with Pirelli Scorpion tires.
