Liberty Yam has created a stunning tribute to legendary French Yamaha icon Jean-Claude Olivier ‘JCO’ with a muscular Café-Dragster build in 60th anniversary yellow and black colours. The Café-Dragster, which won the 2015 Yamaha Dealer Built Contest for the VMAX category, is a very rarely seen take on the powerful street bruiser that celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Many of its pieces are one-off hand made designs.
The cool half-fairing is inspired by the MT-OS and compliments the aluminium loop back, carbon details and leather seat. The VMAX is lowered by 2cm and also features a quick shifter with control on the handlebars. There is a larger rear rim and the added weight puts the finishing touches to its amazing potential for accelerating.
