SELLER SAYS: This one-of-a-kind LAMS-approved V-Star boasts less than 1000km on the engine. The impressive and priceless paint job to the tank, chassis and accessories gives it the name ‘The California’ and making it, from what I’ve seen, one of the most customised LAMS-approved V-twins on the market. Every inch of this bike has been meticulously customised for aesthetic appeal. The gold plated rim spokes, engine covers, clutch and brake pedals. The white-wall tyres, custom ape hangers, hand-stitched bobber seat, forward controls, pillion rack, rear fender the list goes on. The last bike to be sold from Nightcraft Bobbers and personally still looked after by the mechanic. This bike is one to be appreciated. Recent roadworthy and rego till 06/02/24.

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: When it comes to motorcycle taste, there’s an endless spectrum. Some folks like ’em big, some small. Some like ’em fast, some slow. Some like ’em old-fashioned, some like ’em contemporary. And some folks like to leave bikes as they came from the factory, and some don’t. Haz – the seller of this head-turning Yamaha – is clearly one of those who don’t. Heavily customised from a frankly boring Yamaha XVS650, this bike is as much a work of art as it is a means of transport. Actually, I shouldn’t describe the mid-size V-Star as boring. They’re a great bike – small enough to be manageable by LAMS riders but big enough to look and feel like a ‘proper’ bike – and blessed with very competent performance and handling. Not to mention Yamaha build quality and reliability, of course. The workmanship from Nightcraft Bobbers appears first class, and the bling is eye-catching without being absurd. We reckon buyers for this one will love it at first glance, and spend a whole bunch of time keeping it spotless and putting it on show.
