I know I’m probably going to get a few frowns for this as it’s certainly not a Cafe Racer, but I had to share this bike.

This is easily one of the best looking XS650 Bobber conversions I’ve seen.  The lines are all right, the colour and paint job aren’t over the top and that front wheel puts a big grin on my face. Small details like the stop light being built into the fender and the beautifully simple exhausts also make this a stand out bike.

 

 

I’d love to have this bike sitting next to my Cafe Racer in the garage for laid back weekend cruises. Kudos goes out to Garaje in Japan for the job they did customising this Yamaha XS650.
