Yamaha XV950 Yard Built Speed Iron by Moto di Ferro

Yamaha’s Yard Built Series is always a fun experiment in custom creations. And from the looks of Italian builder Marco Lugato of Moto di Ferro, he had a bit of fun with the task at hand as well. The donor bike was a Yamaha XV950 and Marco took great care in building it out into the finalized Speed Iron.

Lugato focused on simplicity and performance in this project, resulting in a marriage of soft lines and brute muscle. He equipped the bike with thick tires wrapped around Borrani rims and a front suspension upgrade to VMAX forks. He also outfitted the bike with a handmade aluminum tank, keeping the weight down the brutish appearance high, and aluminum side panel detailing as well. In addition to its machined look, the Speed Iron also boasts 320mm front brake discs and a handmade rear frame. Though this bike won’t be for sale (yeah, we’re heartbroken too), Lugato’s skills are up for any challenge you may want to throw his way.
