there is something magical about giving old things a new lease of life. this is especially true when it comes to vehicle – just any vehicle but for today, i saw something that had my heart fluttering with excitement and that something is this 1978 Yamaha SR 500 motorcycle as custom by Lossa Engineering. maybe its the white that caught my eyes or perhaps, it was the familiar silhouette that i once had a glimpse as a child. whatever it is, you can’t agree it this two wheelers is a looker. though it looks like it has came to the future from 1978 but under the hood (and outside), it is bless with lots of custom work such as relocated battery, a GSXR front end and rearsets, Brembo brakes front and rear, custom sprocket carrier, custom intake manifold and handmade steel tail section, just to list a few. above all, the white paint job with a dash (or two) of red and polished metal make it totally wicked. so how much is it? i have no idea, but as the rule of thumb in buying: always contact the person in question and enquire. in the event, they don’t sell it, i suggest you use your persuasion skill to beg for one. really. it is that beautiful. hit past the jump and check out a few more stunning images of this awesome classic.
