Yamaha XS850 could only get the love of all the bikers and Yamaha fans in the final stages that is the last two years of its tenure. The Yamaha XS850 was an upgraded version of its own sibling the Yamaha XS750 which came in various versions. These twins from the Yamaha Motor Corporation were also said to be notably known as the ‘triples’ or ‘bargain BMW’ and they also comprised a 3-cylinder engine with 826cc of bang!
Nozem, the transformer of this splendid looking Yamaha XS850, is a mishmash of graphics and mechanics in a multidisciplinary studio led by a creative director/mechanic Lorenzo Pinto, who again nests his talent in the worlds of graphic designing and building bikes.Lorenzo thought that the bike’s base was a decent enough to feed his classic cafe racer build concept. It all started with the sheet metal which took place right from the re-designed rear frame to to the rebuilt front forks. While the rims took the Bridgestone Accolade tyres, the all new Harley Air shocks were positioned and paired with the Ducati style sub frame. The bike’s cycle parts were all powder coated in gloss black except the stainless exhaust and the engine was in black and grey. The custom tail lamps, Smiths speedo, racing master cylinder and clutch lever and the wiring loom were then supplemented to finish the bike.For more on Nozem | Website | Facebook
