Ellaspede Crafts A Retro-Style Street Scrambler Moto Fit For Daily Riding

Mar 29, 2021

The predecessor to the Tuning Fork Company’s WR250F, the Yamaha TTR250 is a small-bore dual-sport bike kicked along by an ultra-reliable, quarter-liter thumper. While its air-cooled engine is damn-near bulletproof, its appearance admittedly leaves a lot to be desired, with a dated-looking set of boxy enduro bodywork. These two traits would ultimately make the TTR an ideal candidate for a street scrambler conversion, as demonstrated by Queensland, Australia’s Ellaspede Custom Motorcycles.

Starting with a 2008 example, the Brisbane-based bike shop has replaced the donor’s stock bodywork with a one-off headlight cowl, a vintage Yamaha enduro tank that now houses a sunken analog Velona speedo, and a lightly upswept hooped subframe capped off with a thin ribbed saddle. The original respiratory bits have been jettisoned in favor of a Mikuni TM33 carb paired with a Unifilter pod, and a custom exhaust comprised of a now-brushed stock header feeding into a bespoke mid-pipe before culminating in an old-school MX-style DG Performance can. Other details include Motogadget indicators, custom fenders front and aft, a sub-seat electronics and battery tray, and a 19” front and 18” rear Excel rims shod in Shinko rubber. The final touch would be laying down a bespoke pearl white livery with royal blue lettering and electric blue highlights to match the saddle and fork boots.
