Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to present this, the first ever Martins Brothers Japanese Origin Custom Motorcycle. This special Bike has all the details off the high end V Twins with the reliability of a solid parallel twin.
This Bike is specially prepared for performance and reliability. When the build was started, the Yamaha was believed to have just under 13,000 original miles.
This classic Candy Apple Red Flamed Paint job is by Shorty of Elite Automotive with art work and pinstriping by Joe Martin. The finish is striking, especially in the full sun.
This bike has been thoroughly rebuilt, beginning with a hardtail section for the stock frame, raked and restructured neck and a welded in rear fender. The chrome forward controls have mounts welded to the frame.
The flames seem to lift off the candy apple paint in a 3-dimensional effect. The gas tank is a narrowed Sportster model with the tunnel lowered.
The factory Mag wheels were bead blasted, then powder coated black, highlights were drilled and new bearing were installed along with new Cruiser S/T tires sized at 100/90/19 front and 130/9016 rear. The brake master cylinders are new and the calipers have been rebuilt. The brake lines are all Russell Pro System nylon with chromed fittings. The stock brake rotors were prepared, sanded, and drilled.
The engine has been disassembled and has had the top end bead blasted and all necessary seals and gaskets installed along with a valve job and new rings. As with other aluminum parts, all engine covers were polished.
