Yamaha SR500 Custom Cafe Racer
Marc bought the bike part-finished from the builder Retrograde Mechanica. (It already had light frame mods, the pipes, and the new seat and tank.) Marc wanted to ramp up the dynamics of the bike, so he fitted a shortened supermotard front end and laced a 17″x 4.25″ rim onto the original rear hub. He also fitted 4-pot caliper brakes with a 320mm disc and a Brembo master cylinder.

I hadn’t shot anything for a week or so and was getting a little antsy to make some images happen last week, so I hit up my good buddy D to see if he wanted to go cruise Lookout Mountain in Golden and get some shots. Normally I hate going on a shoot without an idea of what I want to get, but on this day I decided to just say fuck it and see what’d happen. The road was jam packed with road cyclists as usual which made it hard to get the up-close action I was hoping for. I didn’t want to get run over by a power ranger going 30+ mph downhill, nor did I want D to clobber one of them on his beast of a bike. So we pulled over and got some portraits instead. Pretty stoked on a few of them.
