Legendary customizers from across the globe have turned their skilled hands to proving how easy it is to customize one of Yamaha's very flexible retro machines. The exercise provides inspiration and has set new trends in the motorcycle world, making it a reality for everyone to make their Yamaha their own.
SR400 'Stallion & Bronco' by KEDO
KEDO work their magic on the SR400 to create not one, but two stunning special builds with the vintage styled ‘Stallion’ and tough, streetwise ‘Bronco.’
The German parts company’s first independent collaborations with Yamaha have resulted in two SR400 Yard Built creations that showcase some similarities but deliver two very different animals. The first, the ‘Stallion’ is dominated by sharp lines and rounded edges, hinting at its vintage genes.
The second, the ‘Bronco’ is a street tough machine designed for everyday urban use with a blended mix of vintage style and current technology topped off with some serious flair.
Both the ‘Stallion’ and the ‘Bronco’ get the KEDO aluminium rear swing-arm, KEDO custom handlebars, rear sets and the custom seat units. Custom front fenders, front lamp mask and side covers are all designed and made in-house. The ‘Bronco’ gets a tougher look than its brother the ‘Stallion’, and sits up on 18inch tracker tyres.
The rider of both creations gets to enjoy the action looking down on a Daytona ‘Velona’ speedo, analogue lookalike clock face and dash lights integrated into the front fork top yoke.
The ‘Stallion’s’ many changes are wrapped up a beautiful turquoise blue metallic paint job and Stallion logo decals whilst the ‘Bronco’s’ custom work is complemented by an eye catching candy gold paint job and Bronco decals.
