AD HOC #8 – YAMAHA XJ 650 1984
A base we already knew in his version of 750cc.
The bike came in a lousy state after many years have been abandoned in a shed. Cristian buy it with great enthusiasm and brought to the workshop as a project.
The concept was to make a bike for daily wear and occasional passenger.
Having spent many years gathering dust and rust stop, the first thing we did was give a full review and fine-tuned the engine carburetion with new power filters.
My idea was to make a long & low bike and rode it on wheels 16 “front and 15” rear, you assemble Metzeler Marathon tires.
We cut the front fork 9 feet and a few inches down the rear suspension.
The new handlebar switches leads inserted lights and indicator lights, turn signals, etc.. With a large speedometer.
What tops leather belt vintage bike which our client is a big fan.
Lighthouse Square brackets are made ad hoc, and also make the case to function well to combine with the colors of the whole.
Fuel Tank is a Sanglas 400-Y and the bottom did a compartment to hide the light lithium battery and all wiring,
The logo looks on the tank is steel, laser cut.
The seat is upholstered in nappa leather and the seams are a replica of a classic Bultaco. In the grip of the seat we made some rings for hanging key chain that goes to the boot of a car style, with DeMarre.
All this rests on the chassis. When we cut all unnecessary brackets and cut in the back.
This is treated with sand blasting to remove rust and has been given a chrome finish but matte.
The collectors are sheathed in heatproof tape snug and steel wire, ending in a straight exhausts that give simplicity to the whole.
Tires and details are painted cream and the main part is a green stone.
