Yamaha SR400 ‘Lane Splitter 54’ By BCR

One of the major benefits of riding a motorcycle – at least in places where it’s legal – is the ability to cut through traffic between cars. But not all bikes are super well-suited to it. This Yamaha SR400 from BCR (short for Benjie’s Cafe Racers), however, was specifically designed with that very activity in mind.

Appropriately dubbed ‘Lane Splitter 54’ – named for its width in centimeters – this bike was owner Benjie Flipprboi’s solution to his frustration with being stuck in gridlock in his pickup truck. And, as you can see from its super thin body, it’s the perfect bike for the job. But it isn’t just a purpose-built motorcycle, either, as it clearly has style in spades, as well. The bikes upgrades include a chopped down frame and new custom subassembly, a stainless steel tail section, a teardrop-shaped aluminum tank, and a whole mess of other little details that make this thing stand out brilliantly.
