2016 Yamaha FZ-07 By Classified Moto

In the world of custom motorcycles, Classified Moto occupies a unique space. That is to say, they’ve been around long enough that they’re a relative household name in the industry, but they still manage to keep producing new and unique works. To celebrate how far they’ve come, their latest bike, a 2016 Yamaha FZ-07, pays homage to the 1982 XV920R that put them on the map.

Look at the two bikes side-by-side and you’ll see the similarities immediately — from the stance to the color scheme, and a whole lot more. In fact, Classified actually went so far as to build a Benelli Mojave copy tank, just like the original used on that first bike. But it wouldn’t mean much just to rebuild the same old motorcycle, so there are actually quite a few differences, as well (and not just because the bikes have such vastly different mechanical formats). For instance, the headlight rig on the new interpretation features a two-light setup, they chopped off a lot of excess weight, and they even opted to use a host of modern Superperformance parts to help keep the ride smooth as butter. Needless to say, it’s great to see just how far Classified has come without feeling like they’ve lost touch with their roots.
