Yamaha Yard Built - Bolt 'Deptford Yamaha'
Yard Built Bolt by Deptford Yamaha
Back In Black
Check the details, like the matching stainless steel mesh in the seat cap, air filter cover, and rear fender. Hand grips and foot pegs that match and a brake light integrated within the turn signals. Take a look at this amazing little rebuild and then vote for DHY Motorsports.
The details are exhaustive... We ditched the stock exhaust for a Baron's slip-on for improved tone and performance and lighter weight. It also provides the best price/performance ratio. We ditched the stock air cover and blacked out the left crank case cover, battery strap, and exhaust heat sheets. We added Star custom black rider foot pegs from aircraft-quality 6061 billet aluminum, which are a bolt-on, lightweight, and high-strength replacement. Impulse GraphX supplied us with a custom metallic tank graphics.
Loaded up front... We chose a Star Bullet Cowl in black raven and then blacked out the windscreen. Then we blacked out the upper forks tubes to match. We added a blacked out Star headlight bezel and mirror block off plugs. Smoked lenses were added to the front so they would all match. The Star Custom Black Billet Grips are durable and lightweight and include end caps with laser-etched Star logos. They are a perfect match for the custom foot pegs. A Star speedometer visor completes the look. We made sure we covered all the small details. We lowered the forks and added Star fork gaiters but left off the front fender for that custom bobber look.
Lights, lenses, action... Our Low and Mean Shorty fender necessitated a custom solution for our brake light. We chose Custom Dynamic's smoked lenses with LED red bulbs and a Badlands Metric Illuminator run/brake/turn signal module with built in load equalizer to eliminate the need for a brake light. To improve the esthetics while maintaining safety features, we modified the rear belt guard to open up the pulley and belt. A Star Lowering Kit gave us blacked out shocks and a lower stance.
Take a seat... The Shorty rear fender and low rider seat combination from Low and Mean are designed so the lines of the tank would flow thru the seat and into the rear fender. The pan is narrower and the seat is lower but we kept all the foam for comfort. The front cap gives the illusion of a tank extension and we added an accent of stainless steel screening that echoes the rear fender and the air intake cover. The Shorty rear fender offers an aggressive bobber style fender. We loved the look but we did have to solve the problem of the brake light. We chose a custom approach, integrating the brake lights in the turn signals. This gave us a cleaner, streamlined look. Fewer parts, cleaner look, and less cost; a great solution all around.
