Tarmac Custom Motorcycles have talent and skills to take a rusty wreck and transform it into a gorgeous motorcycle. Although, this particular bike wasn’t that bad when it came to their workshop, yet, as Javi sais, it was in a horrible cosmetic condition and needed complete rebuilding. The good thing was that XJ900’s engine was functional and good enough to undergo only a little reworking.

As usual, the guys started by stripping down the donor to performe a ground up rebuilding. Refreshing the engine, they changed the clutch and the gaskets, then it was sand blasted and painted in black to match the bodywork design. As all motorcycles customized by Tarmac, this Yamaha XJ900 has been built with completely reworked wiring system.

The carbs have been freshened with new needles, rejetted and fitted with air filters. TC got rid of the stock exhaust system and hooked up a pair of megaphone exhaust with a nice thermal wrap.

While assembling the bike, the guys completed the front end with totally different parts. The fork, as well as the brake discs, calipers and master cylinder come from Yamaha R1. The headlight was taken from the classic Spanish motorcycle and it was covered by the protective grid before going on the bike. A little speedo, sitting next to the Renthal bars, is an authentic cafe racer item. Both fenders have been hand-made of alluminium with English wheel.

Heidenau tyres, trials footpegs, enduro style license plate and a tail-light – that’s what gives the bike a real scrambler touch. Modified and painted in white and red with black pinstrips Kawasaki KZ650 fuel tank looks very naturally on the bike and suits it perfectly.

The guys say, “now this powerful 900cc yamaha feels really like a less capacity bike, smaller, narrower and lighter… Johny (the commissioner of the bike) is really pleased with it!!!”. Johny is a lucky guy, as the build is truly terrific. Great job, guys!
