Heiwa Yamaha TX650

Heiwa Motorcycles in Japan have a knack for building beautifully crafted bobbers and classically styled bikes. In a land that has just as many custom bike builders as sushi restaurants – Heiwa always manages to serve up something tasty. Their latest creation is this stunning Yamaha TX650. Heiwa have hand built most of the bike including a one off fuel tank, exhaust pipe, handle bars and seat. Some other features include Progressive rear suspension and they also told us they moved the front fork down three inches. If you want to see more from Heiwa, check out their website – unfortunately it’s all in Japanese but the pictures are worth it.

Also found this original article on the Yamaha TX650A which appeared in Cycle Guide magazine in 1974. It’s worth a read if you want to know how the bike faired in one of its original road tests.

    The paint on that tank is amazingly deep. Anyone for a swim?

    Only one thing I don’t like about this bike: it’s not mine.
