Rules of entry were simple, it’s gotta be based on an SR 250 and it’s gotta be done for under 1000 Euro. With the right people and the right skills the donor bike was transformed in to a drag bike esque Cafe Racer.

Modifications made to the humble Yamaha SR 250 are clearly dramatic. The frame was chopped and simplified, engine casings drilled and dressed, custom formed body work(tank, seat, tail), 2x one litre drag style fuel tanks replaced the bikes original tank, a lovely big fat Firestone was fitted to the rear and custom seat and tank trim was stitched and pleated in chocolate brown leather.
