Hand made rearsets and leaves . All mods , paint carbon fiber and polishing done by Riche him self .Chrome rad grill .
Richy Herbert the very talented builder of this bike has a couple specials aced on the 350 ypvs . He does all the mods and spraying him self . This was the first one he built back in 96 . It started out blue then , now it carry's the yellow paint job . Believe it or not this bike took Richy and his mate Kenny Lincoln just over a week to build .
Richy used F2 side panels a couple of sheets of carbon fibre and fibreglass to fabricate up the seat unit .
The whole lump has been shifted 10mm to the right to clear the huge 160 rear Yokohama . despite the repositioning of the engine and the unusual large rear tyre richy says the handling is just canny .
To give the old YP frame a fresh new look Richy fixed frame bars and a new sub frame giving it this unique look . The tubes on the left hand side bolt in to place and can be easily removed for engine extraction. He swopped a KX 125 for the ZXR 400 bits .
