Thousands of custom motorcycle fans who gathered at the Carreau du Temple in Paris on April 11th, were given the first look at the latest creation to come from Yamaha’s ground breaking Yard Built project, the Wrenchmonkees XJR1300, ‘Skullmonkee’.
Throughout 2015 a series of Yard Built projects by select custom builders will focus on the new XJR1300 will demonstrate what is possible through creative use of ‘bolt-on’ parts, reinforcing the real ‘Yard Built’ concept instead of dramatic cutting and welding. First up to take on the challenge are two legendary Copenhagen based builders.
The Wrenchmonkees tracked down and modified the coolest, cleanest and most fitting aftermarket parts to transform the bike and pay tribute to the 20th anniversary of this legendary street bike:
*Handcrafted Wrenchmonkees parts
*MMB mini digital speedo
*Custom Wrenchmonkees yellow headlight
