This is a custom built Yamaha 650 cafe racer
It began life as a 1982 Yamaha XS650 Heritage Special
As with all of our builds the bike was tore down to the bare frame
Modifications were done to accommodate the required changes
The low mileage engine on the bike is essentially stock but upgrades have been made
We used an XS Charge Permanent Magnet Alternator set-up
Plus a Pamco electronic ignition and electronic advance unit
Mikuni VM34 round slide carbs have been fitted to custom fabricated intakes with free flowing XS Performance pod filters
A super rare N.O.S. Bennelli (MOJAVE) seat & tank combo have been used after being powder coated with a custom “BLUE MURDER” finish
Yamaha tank badges were added for the finishing touch
