You know that here at AMERiders we love custom bikes and we have found another one that you are going to like. This one is a Space Age Café Racer. This bike took a whopping 300 hours to complete. Perhaps one reason why custom motorcycles are so interesting is that each creation comes with its own unique story. As such, a custom motorcycle isn’t merely worth the sum of its parts. Rather, it carries with its threads of the builder’s personality, character, and emotion. Such is the case with this stunning Yamaha RD350 cafe racer, dubbed Space Traveler.
Built by Bernhard Naumann, who goes by Blechmann, it features unique retro styling which gives it a futuristic aesthetic. Based out of Austria, Naumann takes pride in building and fabricating things from scratch, and with this custom build, he brings the phrase “built not bought” to a whole new level.
Moving down to the frame, the RD350’s stock frame was modified with cross-drilled braces which stiffened things up and sharpening the handling. On top of this, the drilled braces provide a very space-age aesthetic for the bike, making it look right at home in an 80s sci-fi movie. As far as power is concerned, the bike’s two-stroke mill has been significantly beefed up. For instance, the carbs have been jetted to run velocity stacks and a race-spec exhaust was fabricated. With those mods, the engine pumps out an impressive 75 horsepower—a sizeable jump from the stock 59 horsepower.
The bike’s overall transformation has ensured that this custom Yamaha RD350 performs as well as it looks. With very unique styling, the Space Traveler is sure to turn heads wherever it goes.
