This Yamaha RD56 is one amazing bike. It looks like its had more action than Paris Hilton’s bed. Unlike Paris I think the scratches and dents actually adds to the beauty. The RD56 frame was a new design based on the revolutionary Norton Featherbed.

Never has a 1978 Yamaha Sr500 looked so good. Deus have totally rebuilt this classic and turn it into a SR542 Street Tracker. The back end looks very similar to their TW225. Apparently it has left Australian shores and headed for Hollywood. Rumoured to be Orlando Blooms. [via HFL]

This is one hell of a hair part. I wish my hair looked like that after i take off my helmet. Unfortunately it looks more like this.
I just received some pics of my sr400 before it gets shipped out here. Looks like they have done a good job packing and wrapping. I’m sure there’s a lot that can happen between Japan and Australia. I have heard some horror stories about cars being filled up with water or bikes that look like they have been dropped by forklifts! Anyway, it still looks great at this stage.
The Japanese love their TW200 and TW225’s and they love their accessories. And so do lots of other people out there judging by your comments. Heres a selection of some sweet TW225’s mostly from japan except the Deus one. Love that Deus alloy tank…
I love going to Deus. I don’t enjoy going there with my ankle biters but hey i had no choice today.
Yes, it is another Japanese custom shop. But these guys are doing things a little different. They look like they are really experimenting with tanks, pipes and paint jobs. Pretty distinctive. They are called Luxe Motorcycle Factory and they also have lots of other bikes on their website thats definitely worth checking out. Mostly SR400/500’s and w650’s.

The Japanese love their SR400‘s. Every custom shop has so many on their websites. I don’t mind because i love this classic. Heres a few from Motor Rock in Japan. They have lots of bobbers on their site as well.
Found this beautiful old red 1969 Yamaha Scrambler at Yama parts. Its a really detailed website if you like seeing all the pics of each restorations. Heres a classic blue 1969 AS1 as well. They’re not the fastest looking machines but i bet they still turn some heads…
