Auto Fabrica SR500

British custom builders Auto Fabrica have really achieved perfection in its simplicity with their new build, a Yamaha SR500 conversion. This sleek and clean 60s scrambler-influenced ride has a custom bodywork handmade from aluminum, and features some stunning details such as the remarkable exhaust, finished in a silver ceramic coating for added heat protection, and with an exposed aluminum surface on the tank, which doubles up as a knee guard for the exhaust. It also features a custom made seat finished in a tough reversed leather, new shocks, a reworked frame with all unnecessary parts removed or relocated out of sight, tiny LED taillight and small LED indicators front and back, custom leather grips, and 18inch wheels fitted with chunky Maxxis tyres. The end result is a design-forward scrambler ready to tackle any dirt track.

EL SOLITARIO CUSTOM MOTORCYCLES

We have featured many custom motorcycles in the past, but none as crazy as the El Solitario conversions. The co-founders, David Borras and Valeria Libano are two irreverent artists/mechanics doing something no one else does, mixing materials like a spicy curry of metal and leather. The resulting mix of raw finishes and immaculate detailing is strangely compelling. Check out the website for the full list of their builds....
