Custom motorcycle builders the Wrenchmonkees are not only at the heart of the custom scene, they are also at the heart of Yamaha's Yard Built activities. From their Copenhagen workshop the Danish duo have been responsible for a string of stunning builds from the Sport Heritage range, including the SR400, XJR1300 and now, the XSR900.
Delivered in their trademark black, the Yard Built XSR900 'Monkeebeast' ups the game and breaks from tradition. This is no run-of-the-mill cafe racer or brat style machine but a brutal brawler, an urban warrior built to tackle any terrain.
"The Wrenchmonkees are one of the most influential builders in the custom scene," commented Yamaha Motor Europe Marketing Coordinator, Cristian Barelli. "We have worked with them since we began the Yard Built project and have collaborated on some really ground breaking machines. This latest build is brilliant; it shows clearly that their design is constantly moving forward and evolving, ahead of the game! I'm really happy that they have shown that with some clever modifications, but no cutting or welding to the frame, you can transform the XSR900 into something completely different."
