Kruz Company is a new bike builder born from two guys with a love of working on bikes in the back of their garages joining forces and taking their work public. And their first act as a bike builder is this tracker inspired Yamaha XS 400, a lovely urban cruiser that’s been restored from the ground up after arriving in their studio in terrible condition. Mods bestowed upon the Yamaha XS 400 included a new Honda CB 125 tank, a completely restored engine, Renthal handlebars, new mudguards, and a two-color leather saddle that was created in collaboration with leather goods maker Niyona. Completing the package, a 320mm disc up front payed homage to the Yamaha’s distant Supermoto cousins, as does a big pair of K & N dirt tracks and megaphones. If you’re interested, the Kruz Yamaha XS 400 is for sale, and you can see more of the Yamaha in the gallery below.
