This ‘89 Yamaha RD 350 was a special project for us, not only because its owner is a close friend, but also because this project was like nothing we had done before. Like always, either our clients tell us what they have in mind, or they let us advise them. #BOLT23 was its owner’s inspiration. Check out #BOLT23’s customisation process.
What we wanted was to give it a 90s Critérium race vibe, so we fitted a Suzuki GSX-R600 front end, motocross grips, and tailored Café Racer handlebars. It’s got oversized Galfer front brakes and Goodrich brake lines. Besides, the clock, odometer and tachometer are Koso GP. Another aspect that stands out of this Yamaha RD 350 is its coating. We used special GULF lacquer, which is widely used in the motor racing world.
This project took us longer than you might think. For example, the engine was rebuilt completely to boost its power. In this way, we were able to increase comfort and efficiency.
At Bolt Motor Company, we’ve got two priorities: to leave our clients open-mouthed and to guarantee that they can ride their custom bike as much as they want. We’re sure #BOLT23’s owner is having the time of his life!
