For years, custom motorcycle makers have been pushing the boundary of what the “future” may hold for two-wheeled enthusiasts — from innovative sportbikes to modern recreations of retro roadsters, the realm of motorcycle design has seen tremendous growth. Now, California-based JSK Moto Co. has stepped forward with their latest offering, a dramatic recreation of a 1993 limited-development Yamaha GTS 1000 — a bike that, at production, was already ahead of its time.

Originally, the Yamaha GTS 1000 was a 604-pound touring cycle that utilized a comfortable upright seating position and a slew of gaudy body panels. In order to fully realize their futuristic vision, the team at JSK decided that the rebuild of the bike would opt for a more streamlined body style, replacing the once-overbearing peripherals with custom, 3D-printed parts. After stripping the bike of its original body, a custom tank and radiator were crafted and laser cut, along with a number of individually designed parts that were strictly envisioned to bring the bike into modernity. The absence of a traditional front fork is just one of the Yamaha’s original claims to fame, utilizing a one-of-a-kind forkless front suspension that depends on hub-center steering technology to redirect force and counteract weight-shift during use. Alongside the bike’s outlandish red and black silhouette and alien suspension system, the 1000cc, four-cylinder cycle also features an illuminated six-light headlight assembly, a custom minimalist seat design that was milled in-house by Black Smith CNC Co., and updated upholstery courtesy of Kingsman Seat’s Sara Dai.
