The head light, with the number 1 in it, is laser cut from Perspex plates. Ideas formed to use a black number one that would light up when you switch on the head light. That required a lot of trial and error, but we did it! With led strips and a mix of transparent and non-transparent Perspex plates, the black number one lights up when you switch on the lights! The actual headlights are made of ellipsoid lights and in the top plate a small 48mm speedo and tachometer are mounted. This really gives the bike a cool futuristic, but at the same time a vintage classy tracker look.
And as we were using the laser equipment for the head light, we decided to take it a step further. Everywhere on this bike you’ll find laser engraved Perspex details. We even made our own license plate from Perspex!
To get the lines we were looking for, we fabricated a bolt-on subframe in such that it looks like the original frame continues. This subframe is also the mounting bracket for the seat. The seat is supported from front to back to make it absolutely sturdy. And at the rear, underneath the seat, a cool led strip with tail light, brake light and indicator lights is installed.
The color pattern was known. Yamaha’s 60th anniversary colors… But of course with our own touch in it. This bike has a subtle metallic flake in the yellow color. We had a nice discussion with the guys that makes our seats, Toni. We wanted to use the Kenny Roberts design, the black and white blocks in the seat upholstery as well. A challenge that Toni happily accepted and with a stunning result. The seat is velvet black with a Kenny Roberts design!
