Making the ultimate cafe racer: Building the Brute 4 - Starting the rebuild

All episodes of Building the Brute can be watched here.

How cool is it to build a motorcycle that looks exactly like the one in your dreams?

We accepted the challenge together with the custom builders from Wrench Kings. A Yamaha XV100 from 1981 was completely transformed into the café-racer of my dreams. This motorcycle will be used in the video reviews on the FortaMoto YouTube channel. But how does such a dream begin, or better than that – how does such a motorcycle get built? A 9-part series has been made about this whole process, it’s called ‘Building the Brute’

4th episode Building the Brute

In the fourth episode the XV1000 is fully stripped and is now ready to be rebuild. Therefore new parts arrive. One of the highlights of the new caferacer will be the spoked wheels. 17" Excel wheels come in in this episode, together with a lot of other parts. Watch how the V-twin engine is rebuild and how the frame gets a new shiny coating. 

Stay tuned! In the next episode the bike gets on his wheels!
