JvB-moto’s vision for the VMAX Yard Built special was to transfer the stock VMAX into a radical dragster meets café racer concept.
At the front end, a custom-made aluminium mudguard sits below a JvB-moto signature style custom carbon fibre headlight unit integrated into the front forks and Motogadget indicators and above custom carbon wheel covers. Modified aftermarket clip-on bars are added along with an authentic American dragster rev counter by Autometer.
Further custom work includes a beautiful custom carbon tank cover, a heavily modified airbox and electrics and special air intake scoops crafted from stock aluminium units from the original 80’s VMAX.
The stunning craftsmanship continues with a handmade aluminium subframe crafted from bits of the stock unit and a custom fuel tank placed under the seat, holding the same fuel as the standard tank for an unspoiled riding experience.
The rear is beautifully finished with another JvB-moto signature piece, a custom carbon tail unit, handmade by Jens. The exhaust system is modified with a custom 4-1 collector and finished with a growling Termignoni silencer. Reflecting the history of the bike, and of Yamaha, JvB-moto chose a retro colour scheme based on the livery of Yamaha’s 1985 GP team for real authenticity.
