Yet more Yard Built custom goodness from Yamaha: say hello to the ‘Guerilla Four’ by Rough Crafts and Taiwanese builder, Winston Yeh (we hope that’s his real name). Based on the 2015 Yamaha XJR1300, Winston used the traditional outlets on the streets of Taipei to customise the Yammy into this thuggish looker.
As per all Yard Built bikes, the frame remains without any welding or cutting, but with an onslaught of prototype and aftermarket bolt-ons installed – including those hefty-looking wheels from the Roland Sands catalogue. And in case you’re wondering, the tyres are Coker Beck Style.
The stock forks are ditched in favour of some VMAX items, which are shortened by 100mm, and the standard exhaust is utilised with a Rough Crafts custom can. Other RC components include footpegs, ‘bars, fuel tank, velocity stacks and seat/tail unit.
Like most Yard Built projects, there’ll be a range of Rough Crafts parts available to jazz-up your XJR. We doubt it’ll break lap records but can definitely see the Guerilla Four being used in armed robberies as a getaway vehicle, or maybe Phil Mitchell’s everyday ride through the ghetto of Albert Square. You ain’t going to mess with it.
