Thrive Yamaha XS650 motorcycle

June 12th, 2014 by retail design blog

Despite taking over a year to locate and obtain, this classic 1968 Yamaha XS650 took only two months to completely transform. Barata Dwiputra, lead builder of Thrive Motorcycles, was inspired by wood-burning stoves for the design of the bike, which included a complete engine overhaul and hand-fabricated bodywork. Sticking to a color palette of black, with brass and copper accents, the redesign includes a pair of leather belts under the battery box that can hold a flannel shirt or jacket in place.With a custom canvas bag under the seat, there’s even somewhere to stick your tools.
