2002 Yamaha Roadstar XV1600 Custom Beach Cruiser – SN374
UK Registration: HS51 YGK
This bike is simply stunning and has had a lot of hours spent and expensive extras fitted.
We worked with the paint lab in order to create the custom paintwork you see in the photos, a combination of a deep purple metallic has been used for the base, a lilac to create the line work and finished with gold pinstripe.
Whilst the tins were away we have had the carbs off, cleaned and rebuilt as you can see in the video the bike runs great.
The wheels are custom billet alloy, very expensive (over $1500 new!) and fitted with brand new Avon Whitewall tyres. The seat is a custom Roadstar base that has been retailored with a rear fender bib to match, whilst wrapped around the seat is a super rare and expensive chrome seat rail (these are rare in the US whilst here in the UK you’ll do very well to find one). Fitted with Vance & Hines long shots that give the bike a superb V Twin lope, a custom ‘STOP’ tail light and finished with a lowered rear fender to give the perfect stance.
This bike is up there with the quality of customs built in the States, would certainly turn heads at Daytona and has garnered plenty of positive comments from Facebook forum members worldwide This bike was won by an elderly gentleman in a recent Aspire competition, he recognised that it was too heavy for him so we purchased it back.
