T.W.O.: Yamaha SR400 by Motor Rock - Clock Work

As much as I love the muscular lines of factory sport bikes such as the MV Agusta 1090RR, I still feel more drawn to the custom two wheelers, as you may have noticed from our two wheel articles. Bikes such as Motor Rock's Yamaha SR400 Custom 'Clock Work' really float our collective boats, with its brush chrome finish and an overall aesthetic that’s very unlike its original form. It's 400cc 'single' now sports a 89mm piston and 92mm stroke crankshaft, matched to a high performance Keihin CR Carburetor and K&N air filter. Other features include one-off handlebars and tail light, with Easyriders billet rear suspension mounting a Yamaha XS650 wheel at the rear, with a custom 16-inch wheel up front beneath the springer font end.
Star of the show is surely the custom one-piece seat and fuel tank, which no doubt took many hours of toil to produce, as all metalwork on any bike we've seen usually does. Unfortunately, Clock Work is not up for sale as yet but even if it is, it would be available only in Japan which is sure to disappoint many two-wheeled lovers. Then again, if you have a burgeoning bank account, a trip over to their HQ in Nagoya and throwing lots of Yen at them may just change their minds.
