BIKE (UK) - - CUSTOMS -

Ev­ery­thing but the paint by Ryan. OK he’s a fit­ter/welder by trade in Ley­land, Lancs so he’s handy with a TIG torch, but it’s the lines of this cobby 1978 triple that make it work so well. ‘I wanted it to look as though Yamaha had done it,’ says Ryan. And for a to­tal of £2400 (in­clud­ing £550 for the bike) this is a strong re­sult. R1 calipers, FZR600 forks, XJR1300 shocks, it’s all pretty much re­pur­posed Yamaha ex­cept the top yoke. ‘I got a com­pass out, made a tem­plate, put it on an al­loy block and just shaped and drilled it,’ says Ryan. The whole deal works nicely as you like. He’s nailed it.
