Unusual boxy shaped T 005 Cross Motorcycle has been designed for a graphic designer. It’s a special project designed and built for special friend, someone who always finds a way on how to combine ideas and function in one product. The result is sleek and cool motorcycle design that can be used on the road even in a bad condition but still shows beauty and sleekness that represents owner’s ideas. The design started with creating a new sub frame for 2008 Yamaha Scorpio in order to get a clean look under the seat while maximizing the horizontal grid. The aluminum plate is used to construct the body panel to reduce weight due to thick material plate.
Few parts of the bike got new replacements, the team renewed the gasket and place it on a vapor blasting treatment to create contrast and give value to the bike before the coloring phase begins. The PE 28 Carburator allows this bike to breath fresh air and the custom-made stainless steel exhaust is covered with a black exhaust wrap.
Equipped with fatbar handlebar for better control, this motorcycle is also completed with custom clutch and brake level. The dashboard features light indicators and GPS, custom light switch, and a start button. For the front suspension, they use a set of Honda’s upside down forks with modified steering column to fit Yamaha’s chassis. For the rear, they use Yamaha’s swingarm paired with Showa Monoshock suspension.
The original footsteps also get makeover with some details to enhance the grip by pairing them with chrome shifter and brake control. The main colors for this bike are Gun Metal Grey for aluminum panel and Black for the rest of the bike.
