The ‘Type 7E’ From Auto Fabrica is a Minimalist's Dream Bike
Auto Fabrica is one of the best names in motorcycle customisation. They have a particular proclivity for re-fabricating Yamahas and flat trackers, and their latest edition, the Type 7E Yamaha SR500 is truly a triumph for the motorcycle house.
The Type 7 Series is designed with adventure in mind, although you might not want to muddy this moto, the Type 7E (built out from a powerful Yamaha SR500), is designed to explore the off-road world. Everything about the original was altered; the engine was rebuilt and refined, the seat unit was given a custom rear loop modification; custom fuel fillers have been added to further spartan-ize the minimalist aesthetic of this black-and-white beast. Custom handmade sand-bent exhaust pipes run so high on the bike that it can ford through shallow waters. With a lightened and de-lugged frame, this bike is built to truly fly.
