ZEDCAT / YAMAHA SR500

We took a Japanese import Yamaha SR500 (complete with the aesthetically pleasing twin-leading front hub), stripped it back to bare bones and modified from the ground up. Sleek and compact with a dark yet seductive edge this midnight prowler isn’t for the light footed, the notorious kickstart only single cylinder motorcycle has been given a full CMBL make over and wears it’s new stripes with pride. It’s coat is unique, our own recipe, ultra matt blasted texture artwork on single colour (gloss black) bodywork. You gotta see it to believe it.
