VMAX ‘CS_07 GASOLINE’ BY it roCkS!bikes


it roCkS!bikes Return with the Yard Built VMAX ‘CS_07 Gasoline’

The monocoque masters from Portugal are back to kick off 2016 in style with their third Yard Built project, based on the legendary Yamaha VMAX. The Portuguese duo from Oporto, Alexandre Santos and Osvaldo Coutinho, have been building beautiful custom machines as it roCkS!bikes since 2013, incorporating their trademark monocoque tank, seat and tail unit into each build.

For their latest Yard Built creation Osvaldo and Alex set out to give the VMAX an entirely new image, enhancing and exploiting its drag racing capabilities.  As with all their builds, the ‘CS_07 Gasoline’ gets the trademark monocoque unit, although as the VMAX fuel tank is located under the seat, the unit features a false fuel tank. The unit is hand crafted from metal sheet and gives the bike a sleeker, slimmer and sportier profile with a retro style. 

The drag racer influence is clear to see with the massive slick rear Mickey Thomson tyre and handmade stainless steel 4 -2 headers connecting to a custom free flow SC Project exhaust system with carbon silencers.

The CS_07 ‘Gasoline’ rides on custom made spoke wheels, 3.5x18 front with 120/70x18 Dunlop rubber and a 6.0x18 rear for the drag strip tyre. The stock tacho is kept but comes in a custom aluminium housing and the standard fuel tank is replaced with a beautiful custom aluminium unit with it roCkS!bikes motif. A metal hand crafted fairing ensures slippery aerodynamics for the ¼ mile and LSL footpeg adapters and clip-ons put the rider in the correct position. A Rizoma fuel cap and K&N air filter add some extra bling and Brembo brake and clutch master cylinders take it to the next level.

A host of Motogadget parts including handlebar grips, an m-switch and m-blaze turn signals ensure the custom work really stands out, and the handmade leather seat with it roCkS!bikes logo sets the standard. 

The build was completed at the end of 2015, the last of the year to celebrate 30 years of the VMAX. To mark the milestone a classic paint job was used to finish the bike. Taken from the 70s, the white, black and yellow colour scheme is pure icon, celebrating not just 30 years of the VMAX, but also 60 years of Yamaha! The bike was airbrushed and then gloss varnished in house by the builders.
