Classified Moto plans to stop creating customized Yamaha XV’s for a while, and while that might be bad news for some of you, keep in mind that there is a silver lining. The company’s most recent project involves a Free Range 920 motorcycle created for the chef and owner of Bourbon and Rosso Trattori, Kristian Miemi. Built with performance in mind, this two-wheeler features a stunning design that’s as aggressive as it is unique.
The original 1982 Yamaha X920R has been stripped down to its essentials, but some of its standard parts, such as the swingarm, were kept intact. On the other hand, the stock shock was replaced with a Progressive Suspension 465, while the chain was swapped with a DIG Gold X-Ring. The wheels are now Warp 17″ supermotos wrapped in a Shinko 700 tire at the front and a Kenda Big Block at the rear. Then there’s the custom stainless steel slash-cut exhaust system, which further contributes to the bike’s masculine, rugged look. Last but not least, we shouldn’t leave out the repurposed cargo basket and the leather seat.
