Custom Yamaha SR500 Cafe Racer

Dec 4, 2019

We have encountered several beautiful Yamaha motorcycles over the past few weeks including two of the more recent Yamaha Viragos by Eric Meglasson and Doc’s Chops. Featured here is yet another superb Yamaha, but this time in the shape of a Yamaha SR500.

This stunning Cafe Racer is subtle in design, with a monochromatic look that we certainly fell for at first glance. Taking nine months to complete, owner Marc Woodward added several modifications in addition to the light frame mods, pipes, tank and seat that were already customized from the previous owner.  His modifications include 4 pot caliper brakes with a 320mm disc, a Brembo master cylinder, shortened supermotard front end, and much more.
