Most custom motorcycle builders have one thing in mind when creating their work(s) of art: find a way to elaborate on the bike’s original platform, bring it to a higher threshold, and help it to stand apart from the crowd. Needless to say, Panache Customs’ nostalgic 1977 Yamaha XS360 does just that.

After spending the better part of a year learning all he could about the craft from his friends at Diamond Atelier, Panache’s Charles Murillon decided that it was time to start his own build. He eventually settled on this 1977 Yamaha XS360 — a rare model that was often overshadowed by its peer, the XS400, in France’s custom motorcycle scene. Murillon quickly went to work, fabricating a handmade rear hoop comprised of seven different tube sections, outfitting the bike with brushed stainless steel side panels, and restructuring the cycle’s electrical system. A Motogadget M-Unit, antigravity lithium battery, and bespoke wiring harness were introduced to the bike, alongside new dual front disc brakes, a new master cylinder, and braided lines. To give the bike that final, personalized touch, Murillon opted for a handsome blue, white, and black color scheme — harkening back to Yamaha’s roots through the implementation of the company’s traditional colorway.
