Yamaha Xs400 | By Hold Fast Motors

Hold Fast Motors is a small workshop run by Andrew Hull from Austin, Minessota. He has done an awesome job turning this 1979 Yamaha XS400 into a Brat/Scrambler hybrid, named "Black & Tan”. Inspired by the knobby tires and the rough look of the Triumph Steve McQueen was riding in the movie "Great Escape", Andrew´s creation went from a brat bike to this cool knobby tired scrambler.
