Post Listing Update: This custom XSR was pulled off of eBay, final sale price unknown.
Here’s a fun complement to this morning’s Yamaha TT500! I’ve featured several examples of Greg Hageman’s work in the past, such as this DT360-inspired Virago, this Vincent-inspired Virago, the “GoGo” Virago, and this Yamaha-competition winning Star Bolt that may have inspired the creation of the SCR950. Today’s, let’s look at something a bit more modern than his usual work.
Greg has built a custom XSR700 for Yamaha before – maybe you saw it at the Handbuilt Show this year? Based on the location and wording of the listing, it seems that today’s feature bike is being offered by Greg Hageman himself, and he says that he “built it for promotion” but I can’t find any examples of that online. All I’ve seen is this feature on Pipeburn.
The changes to this example (VIN: JYARM21E4JA000558) were cosmetic, so the frame and wire harness were not cut and you should still have a factory warranty for 3 more months. Highlights of the work include a custom LED headlight, Acerbis front fender, modified seat to add a rear rack, brush aluminum tank cover with “TT” decals, powdercoated wheels, Delkevic exhaust, and Continental TKC80 tires, but I’d recommend you click the above link to Pipeburn if you want more details. The asking price is much lower than Hageman’s usual work, and the bike has just 35 miles on it. It’s cheaper than a new XSR700, which would set you back $8,499 plus a $375 destination charge and taxes. Which option would you go with?
Find this custom XSR for sale in Bettendorf, Iowa with an unmet opening bid of $7,500 or a BIN of $7,750
