When our client initially proposed the color scheme for this bike, I must admit I had my reservations. "Fluoro Yellow – are you sure, dude??" The last thing he wanted was a "YamaHarley," so he was resolute in his choice. "Beefy, low, mean, black, aggressive..." These were the defining characteristics emphasized in the project brief. And yes, we couldn't forget the Fluoro Yellow Wheels.
I had my doubts from the start, uncertain if I'd develop a fondness for this particular build. But as the project evolved, it began to grow on me, and I must admit, I wouldn't mind having this beauty in my own garage at home!
The initial priority was to lower the bike as much as possible. The exhaust had to stand out and make a bold statement without dominating the design. So, we cleverly concealed the muffler beneath a one-of-a-kind chin spoiler custom-made for this project. We also worked on beefing up the front end by crafting custom fork sleeves. It took some effort to get them to fit perfectly without any clearance issues, but we succeeded!
The next challenge was to achieve that low bobber look while still accommodating a pillion rider. Who wouldn't want to have the option to share the ride with a passenger and showcase their custom creation? To address this, we installed shorty shocks, created a reinforced fender, and handcrafted a unique one-off seat to suit the design.
As for the color scheme, we introduced matching yellow pinstripes as highlights to complement the powder-coated wheels. Matte black sides and a matte charcoal finish on the tank's top completed the striking visual transformation.
