Yamaha Xs650 | By Thrive Motorcycle

Thrive Motorcycle is a new custom bike shop from Jakarta, Indonesia, they have re-imagined the classic Yamaha XS650 and transformed it into this remarkable build named ‘T004 MooN’. The bike, believe it or not, was inspired by wood-burning stoves, the paint scheme is with shades of black and features brass and copper accents for the details. The re-creation includes a complete engine overhaul, hand-fabricated bodywork, and comes complete with a custom canvas tool bag. We love the detail of the elegant floating rear fender.
