If there’s one name you need to keep an eye on in 2014, it’s ER Motorcycles (short for ‘Espresso Racer’). Founded in 2009 by Blaž Šuštaršič, the Slovenian workshop has steadily been producing noteworthy customs—such as their BMW R80 ‘Mobster,’ which featured in our Top 5 BMW R-series list.
This striking Yamaha XV750 is no exception. It was built on a tight budget for a friend, and serves as a startling reminder of just how much potential Yamaha’s XV platform has. The donor bike, a 1983 model, “was bought in a small Austrian village from a very funny-looking guy,” Blaž recalls. “It was one of those weird situations where nothing quite matched. But this interesting man had the bike we wanted and we were able to get it for nickels and dimes.”
