When setting out to do something completely different you must sometimes take the road less traveled. In the case of the Tmax the equivalent was that of walking on Mars. There was nothing easy about this project. No guidelines, no magazines, nor pages of internet content to help guide crucial design decisions. There was no one to call on the I phone or be inspired by. There really was nothing but our own thoughts and inspirations. From Surf scooter to boy racer and back again the pendulum swung. In the end the racer fought its way to the front of our consciousness to overcome the awkward and strange flow of the naked machine. The finished product appeals to the rider in us.
After enjoying the challenge of building a Hyper Modified Vmax against Ludovic Lazareth and Marcus Walz we decided to give it another shot....this time with the TMAX! Watch our vid below and let us know what you think.
This Bike of The Month is probably a bit different from the bikes you see all the time. The build that RSD did was very cool and we were stoked to be apart of it. The custom seat we built is a hand crafted two piece set up that follows the sleek and modern lines that RSD designed for this Yamaha. The seat features a pleated pattern that was all hand sewn and a cognac brown leather chosen by RSD.
