EUROPEAN UNION. An Irish XV750 Cafe Racer from Italy’s KSC
The Irish and Italians decide to build a motorbike. Its sounds like the start of an old joke, but the end result is one of the nicest XV750s of 2017.
Yamaha’s XV750; been there, done that. Am I right? We’ve seen more cafe’d iterations of the good ol’ Coffee Grinder than just about any other bike out there. Hell, if XV cafe racers were actual coffee, the world would be ankle-deep in espresso. But every now and then we come across one that’s different enough to catch our very jaded eyes. No points for guessing that this, the latest bike from Italy’s Kustom Special Components, is just such a one.
“My name is Massimo,” says, Signore Carriero. ”I am an Italian living in UK. The shop is in Italy and is run by my friend Fabio. The project was made by the two of us and another colleague, Alessandro. I am an engineer and I designed and produced parts for the bike. Fabio is specialised in fabrications and welding and Alessandro is mechanic and a bike builder”.
