Asumati Bike

by Jim Giuffra at AFT Customs a tribute to the Native Americans Miwok tribe (also spelled Mi-wuk) from Northern California.

The bike is a convertible with a removable tail section if you want to have a passenger or ride solo. A Paucho tank was cut, widened, tunneled & reshaped. If you are looking for the radiator, yes it’s now relocated under the seat. Motor is a naked engine design that AFT Customs pioneered with a VT750 performance kit, top end narrowed 2 inch. high compression pistons & cams and costom exhaust. The Yamaha R1 front end uses a custom set of trees & risers sourced from Alan Kraus of Kraus Motor Co. Braking via Beringer hand controls and calipers. Grip Ace digital switches inside grips & turn signals. License plat rotates from vertical to horizontal. Bars are 1 3/8″ by Easton. Leather by Duane Ballard. Paint by Todd Evans.
