Spirit Of The Seventies S7

Somewhere, on the glorious roads of rural Scotland, this beautiful Yamaha XS750 custom is carving corners and blasting down the straights, at the command of its new owner. But it was built hundreds of miles away by Spirit of the Seventies, the English workshop that wears its influences on its sleeve. Tim Rogers and Kevin Taggart have turned out a handful of classic racers so far, but “S7” is their best yet. And that’s not just down to the eye-catching paint effects. The front end has been upgraded with forks from a Yamaha YZF-R6 sportbike, and the brake system is from an R1. Adjustable Hagon shocks keep the rear under control, and extra power comes from a rebuilt engine and a bespoke three-into-one exhaust system from Co-Built. The rear subframe has been shortened, and fitted with a carbon fiber tail unit with a leather seat pad. There’s an 18” wheel at the front now, and both rims have been powdercoated. Other details include custom rearsets and new lights and indicators. None of this is rocket science, but a lot of work (and a great eye for aesthetics) has gone into this XS750. And isn’t the paint on that tank just gorgeous?
