99Garage XJ600 Cafe Racer


  I’ve featured this bike before, but knew almost nothing about it.  That’s all changed, as Lukasz from 99Garage has contacted me about the build.  99Garage is from Poland, a country that has a history of mechanical innovation, with their own aerospace industry between the World Wars.  The tradition continues with this build, based on a Yamaha XJ600 (known as the Seca II in the USA), resulting in a nice blend of cafe racer and streetfighter styles.  There is a nice balance of color, with the metal tank, black frame, and white wheels contrasting nicely.  The seat may not be the most comfortable with the forward tilt, but the minimalist look adds to the style.  It’s always nice to see a build based on a bike that doesn’t receive much attention from the custom community!  Here’s the list of modifications…

Just wondering if the R6 brake calliper went straight on or did you have to mod?
