Originally this bike XV920 2017, it brought the customer, after talking with whom Greg realized that the ideal option would be to build custom bikes Yamaha XV2017.
Greg found steps from the Loaded Gun closer to the center, raised the back and slightly lowered front forks to provide a more vertical landing, and the long wheelbase XV2017 base ensures a smooth and comfortable ride.
