1989 Yamaha TW200 “Tonka” By Lanesplitter Garage

Typically we’re bit weary when the words “found on a farm” are used to describe an old motorcycle. That is unless Brisbane-based Lanesplitter Garage is the one doing the picking and pulling. In that case, have at it. Especially with a ride like this Yamaha TW200 “Tonka” in their portfolio.

Built out for the city, the idea came to Lanesplitter via a client who wanted a reliable street tracker. Now, with a nod to the once farm bike, this new build is truly something special to behold. For the build, a new stainless steel exhaust – fabricated in the shop – now shares the lines of the seat while a second-hand tank now replaces the Yamaha stock version and blends seamlessly with the seat. Also, a new LED taillight was outfitted above the floating rear fender (new as well) and pairs nicely with the LED-lit license plate. In addition, blacked out wheels now match the oversized tires on this incredibly fun looking toy of a bike. [H/T: Bike Exif]
