Urban Guerilla…

Sleek. Stripped back. Winston Yeh shows how you don’t have to have a chop or die mentality to build a unique bike. For the 20th anniversary of the XJR1300, he decided to build the ‘Guerilla Four’.

Winston of Rough Crafts starts his design process virtually. Deciding how parts will look and work and then either having them made in-house, or outsourcing the work within Taiwan. Working extensively on Harleys before, the Yamaha is expanding their work.

Although the engine has not had major work, air runs through custom velocity stacks then out to a custom tail pipe. The tank, seat and tail have all also been created specifically for this bike giving a slimmer, meaner presence.

A custom-made triple tree houses front forks that come from a VMAX and have been shortened 100mm for an aggressive stance. The caliper mounts were then modified to accommodate the 11.5 inch disk brakes.

The in-house designed headlight grille sits between the triple trees while all instrumentation has been removed for a clean look. Aggressive handle bars and risers, along with a myriad of custom parts like the foot pegs and fuel cap give the bike a look and feel of its own. The fabrication work was done by OneHandMade Customs.

The Roland Sands BOSS Black Ops rims are wrapped with Coker Beck Style tyres. Air Runner Custom Paint beautifully painted the bike in black with pinstriping.

The finished bike is an even tougher, meaner, stripped back street bruiser than the original.
