Hi my name is Haryo Pramoe, I am a Chef who appeared on Indonesian television cooking shows. My hobby is riding motorcycles. I choose a Yamaha XS 650 year 1972 to build. I bought this in Sidoarjo East Java Indonesia costing us $ 3000. Having a Yamaha XS is my dream come true. The reason I like the XS is the Japanese motorcycle engine is easier to maintain.
Yamaha xs 650 parts in Indonesia are hard to find, therefore buyers from Indonesia should exchange information to fellow owners of xs 650 in Indonesia and overseas correspondence. I chose to build in my own workshop with my friend Nurdin Fajar Hidayat, we both are building using BONERS custom products. The reason BONERS brand we select because we live in an area South Jakarta called Bona Indah (bona-boners). and 111 is our garage house number. lol
It was a lot of energy to rebuild this engine to make it perfect. Bore up engine up to 750 cc. I’m a fan of sinners “SO CAL’style, simple, rideable, affordable but beautiful results. For me to build the motor not pretty expensive, but know how to build it with a heart.
In Jakarta many people can afford to buy Harley but the price can be 3-4 times higher than its original price in US. Fantastic! But that’s real! Yes, oddly enough, something that is prestigious expensive in Indonesia, but for me works of art and hard work can be a great motorcycle concept. I only use the frame and machinery parts only, we don’t use the rest of the parts of the bike. I make custom wheel protector, hand made gas tank, steering wheel, rim, Bore up engine. I also have a hydraulic clutch for easy use.
Warm greeting from Jakarta Indonesia:)
