If you’re gonna come up with a kickass name like “Dark Bullet,” you’d better make sure you don’t waste it on like, a moped, or literally some tarnished ammo. The custom builders at Macco Motors know this and have wisely saved that moniker for their beautiful remake of this 38 horsepower 1978 Yamaha XS400.

This Dark Bullet has a new front axle, 19-inch SR250 wheels on the front with Metzeler Lasertec tires, shorty pipes, and a retuned engine outfitted with K&N air filters. An old fashioned kick starter was fittingly brought in to replace the electric starting system. Macco is making fans worldwide too, as they recently wowed enthusiasts with their Honda Spitfire 09 built from a 2002 Honda CB750 Nighthawk.
