Yamaha is clear that a transformed motorcycle always attracts more the eye than a 100% original one. He already showed us what three great names in the Custom world such as Marcus Walz, Ludovic Lazareth and Roland Sands were capable of doing. That they put their hands on two models as different as the Yamaha V-Max and the Yamaha T-Max 530. Now, at Yamaha they have wanted to go a step further and have involved ten specialists so that transform the Yamaha XV950 at will and you can vote for them on the Facebook they have enabled for it.
The participants are (in order of voting today) Broward Motorsports, M&M Customs, Doc's Chops, Low & Mean, Chappell Customs, Sesto Custom Cycles, Burly Brand, Roland Sands, Palheghyi Designs and Rooke Customs. I recommend that you take a look at the final result of the work that all these builders have marked. There are almost all styles, from classic line motorcycles, up to flat trackers, going through some untouchable aspect.
Curiously, the one that currently has the most votes is a Bobber version of the Yamaha XV950, of a very classic style. So classic that even the front suspension and the original chassis have been replaced by a hard-tail chassis without a rear suspension and a springer fork. At the opposite extreme we find a Street Tracker, which has only changed the essentials, and also offers the replaced parts in kits so that you can make the same at home. As for your taste in colors, here are ten options to choose from.
After having a good time looking at all the participants, I think the one I like the most is Doc's Chops. I think his style is the most European of all. It is also the one that I see more balanced, without reaching the boasts of some other model. Which one do you like the most?
