Well versed in building unique customized retro bikes using machines such as the Yamaha SR500 and XS650 as a base, Wrenchmonkees’ have recently extended their repertoire to include more modern bikes such as the Yamaha XJR1300 Yard Built special they created in 2013. Unwilling to simply re-create café racer style machines using period equipment, Wrenchmonkees employ their philosophy of usability to bring in modern equipment that they then modify to keep with the retro style of their mechanical expressions of individualism.

Incorporating a stripped back and lean design ethos, Copenhagen based Danish special builder Wrenchmonkees have taken the SR400 and with the collaboration of German specialized parts company KEDO armed it for the inner-city jungle.

“With the XJR we were determined to showcase what you could do with the bike, how cool it could look with a café racer style. We really wanted to push the boat out and make something inspirational for XJR fans.”
