Enthusiasts of a “certain age” will see customizer Jeff Palhegyi’s Yamaha SR400-based one-off as the realization of a dream. It’s a simple, elemental, astonishingly beautiful expression of dual-sport/scrambler roots. And it’s not that hard to duplicate. “I trimmed the rear subframe and built a new loop for the rear fender and the custom seat,” he says. “We used a custom aluminum swingarm, but you could retain the stock piece if you wanted to.” Heidenau ADV tires grace the stock rims, and while the shocks are custom Race Tech units, the fork is original, as is the front brake. Custom side covers/number plates partly disguise a simple, hand-built stainless-steel exhaust with a demi muffler at the end. The headlight and taillight come from Dime City Cycles. And the tank? Mostly stock, with the bottom seam removed and a fresh coat of paint.
