Ellaspede Yamaha Xt660

Ellaspede create custom motorcycles, apparel and accessories from their base at West End in Brisbane, Australia. The latest creation to roll out of their workshop is this adventure-ready Yamaha XT660R, a build that can be used as a daily city commuter, but capable of crossing swathes of bush at the weekend.
