Yamaha XS 400 Espresso Racer Costum Bike Design
i-am 2012/2013

I created this cafe-racer together with Flavio Laus.
It is based on a Yamaha XS 400. When we bought the bike the body was worth almost nothing. Since its completion I wouldn’t sell it for any price! The design is entirely based on a photomontage that I created upfront. Flavia Laus helped me restore the bike as close as possible to its original form. There were sleepless nights of anticipation before the moment this kick-ass café- racer devil would prominently be parked in my office. I could see nothing but the design potential within this bike. As if I needed additional reasons, the price was ridiculously inexpensive.
