The Yamaha SR400 is one of Japan’s best selling motorcycles, which explains why it’s such a popular model among custom bike builders. Adding to the ever expanding lineup of custom SR400s, one of the latest incarnations comes courtesy of Sydney, Australia based Gasoline, who transformed the Yamaha from mild to bad-ass with a series of well implemented upgrades. The most notable addition: matte black Yamaha XS650 wheels reminiscent of old-school BMX bikes paired with a set of knobby 18″ and 19″ Shinko Trials tires. From there, Gasoline took a more rugged approach to the design, keeping the custom fabricated metalwork in a raw finish with a basic chrome headlight. Other changes include hand-crafted exhaust and weight-reduction in the rear through the removal of most of the heavy steel, resulting in a lighter, faster bike that looks (and sounds) great.
