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.
