    Tarmac Faction's Cafe Racer Project...the ultimate XSR900

    Hello everyone! It's been hard to keep this project under wraps and not share it with you all, but now that it's finished I'm proud to present the Tarmac Faction Yamaha XSR900 Cafe Racer Project!!!

    The first pic shows the rendering on top with the finished bike below.
















    It's not everyday you get to see what actually goes into making one of these special bikes, but at Tarmac Faction there are no secrets. I wanted to show the world what's possible when injecting an ordinary bike with the DNA of a racebike, using the highest quality components available to the public. Nothing on this bike was fabricated with the exception of the turn signals and rear tail light, and from start to completion the project took just 4 weeks.

    Great project and the colors really pop.
    Also, an interesting list of farkles and doodads, some of which are from suppliers that I am not familiar with and that makes the project even cooler!

    Yes, I'm using what I think are the best products in the world for their application on this bike, and I'm really happy with end result

    If anyone would like to know more info, just let me know...

    Thanks! I wanted to pay homage to the vintage cafe racers, and one way to do that was with color. I research some older bikes, bikes with sidecars, etc, and that dark Burgundy color kept popping up. Seemed like a perfect fit for the project. Really glad you like it

    I like the overall look of the bike but it's the wheel color that really makes this pop.
    That was a bold move - very cool . . .
