An impressive list of custom machined billet bolt on parts include 21inch rims front and rear, rear pulley with cush drive system, the plexi-glass cam gear cover, left side crankcase cover and right side generator cover. The small right side cover and front pulley cover were also machined and an air filter adapter plate was created to go with a cool Crime Scene Choppers air filter cover.

There are also some unique, bespoke parts created just for the build, these include the handmade fuel tank, both the electrical and battery side panels and the rear fender.

The standard Yamaha XV950 headers flow into a one-off custom collector and modified MIVV Ghibli Silencer. A custom battery box is hidden internally and the modified XV handlebars deliver a genuine board tracker look. The custom work continues with stunning custom foot peg adapters, a front bash guard and a modified wiring loom.

The ‘Playa del Rey’ build is completed with a selection of custom aftermarket parts including a Rebufini springer front fork and Ohlins rear shocks. A Crafty B custom fuel cap sits on the handmade tank and a locally engraved engine cover sets it off.  A Vitys headlight and grips add attitude at the front with mini hand controls and switch housings by Rebufini. Rizoma Bullet indicators and foot pegs and a Motogadget speedo and housing add bling. Stopping power gets an upgrade with PM calipers and a set of risers by LA Choppers adds to the west coast vibe.
