Old Empire Motorcycles The Snipe

Our Friday custom motorbike crush comes from Old Empire Motorcycles, a workshop known for their heritage aesthetics. The striking build named "Snipe” started as a 2014 Yamaha SR400, it was striped down to its essentials and fitted with carefully engineered handmade components. From 3D machined yokes and switch gear to the hand beaten aluminium front and rear cowling, this beauty has been removed of all the modern frivolities and resculpted into a streamlined racer with Old Empire´s usual attention to detail and classic styling.

GRIEVOUS ANGEL | BY DEUS CUSTOMS

Another awesome custom bike by Australians Deus. The Grievous Angel, based on a Yamaha SR400, is deserving of the notoriety that Deus has in customizing motorcycles. Basically what was taken from the Yamaha SR 400 was the engine. ... the rest was all changed. Even if it is a Japanese bike, the great qualities of SR 400 were used to create an authentic English Cafe Racer. Check out another of Deus creations, the very original Surf Bike...
