Yamaha XV950 Playa del Rey by Matt Black

Also called the Star Bolt, the Yamaha XV950 is a retro beauty and can be given almost any kind of customization.

The parts of the bike can easily be replaced by the aftermarket ones. Yamaha asked the Matt Black Custom Designs to be a part of the Yard Build movement to give the XV950 an entire new look.

The Matt Black Custom Designs, who love vintage bikes, decided to give the motorcycle a board tracker design with a modern touch, and then a neo-retro bike was born.

The Yamaha XV950 Playa del Rey has been inspired from the old-school racers.

The fuel tank, side panels and fenders have been created by Matt Black, the exhaust has also received customisation. Mivv Ghibli silencer is modified. While Rebuffini supplied the dual springer fork, Ohlins provided the rear shocks.

Check out the video to have a closer look at the bike.
