Ton-Up XSR700 custom

Portugal’s Ton-up Garage took their Yamaha XSR700 back to the future with a design they say was inspired by synthetic sounds and neon dreams…. Um, okay…

They have called their creation ‘Outrun’ and aimed for a sort of retro 80s cool with a brutal, cold and sharp custom.

For anyone familiar with the 80s movie, TRON, this design will be strikingly familiar. Neon colours and harsh lines remind us of how we saw the future not so long ago.

The body is handmade by welding aluminium polygons with a brushed aluminum finishing and a fresh coat of transparent varnish.

Ton-up Garage hand built their own wheels and stainless steel exhaust to complete the look and feel of the bike and fitted street legal racing tyres.

I like it because it’s nuts. No pretend-racer poser-replica here, just sheer gonzo. No brat, tracker, scrambler cookie cutter. No half measures. Gives no quarter and asks none. I don’t have to sign off on the aesthetic, the rugged honesty and comprehensive quality of the design does it for me. Best success, Ton-up Garage!
