Straight out of Japan xs650 cafe racer half-fairing
This Cool and original looking XS Belongs to Numa out of Japan. Numa sent a couple pictures of his bike in with his badass helmet and then I e-mailed him back and asked if we could do a monthly feature on it. It was hard to communicate because neither of us could speak each other’s language. We used Google translator to talk back and forth a little bit, and I was able to get a little bit of info on his bike. So, I’ll try to sum up as best I can what Numa had to say about his new ride.
The bike was built by M/C UPPERが作りました. It is sporting a crazy cool DUCATI 916 front half-fairing. He is extremely happy with the way it turned out “I’m very happy.”
“This bike cowl (fairing) out of one’s passion and paint flakes and candy
I’d like Ko, in Japan and the cowling is flaking paint a motorcycle gang that often
Because, custom and culture, a stranger is seen as a chopper motorcycle gang
Masu. On like this. (Laughs) Try different handlebars and ended up with Separate handle (clip-on handlebar)”
It has the Mikuni VM carburetor Omazu (Omar’s) are attached to the tank and the fiber.
Tail lamp is vintage.
I’m glad non-Japanese people love this bike.
