This Custom Yamaha Inspired By High-End Timepieces Is One Brutal Bike
It really is one to “watch.”
Dubbed the Son of Time, this is a project designed with Dutch watchmaker TW Steel Watches.
While Diamond Atlier incorporated plenty of timepiece-themed design elements, especially the watch installed where the headlight would normally go, and watch face-style graphics surrounding the gas cap, the coolest item might be the extreme cutaway gas tank.
The new tank arches gracefully over the open air, leaving only three-quarters of a gallon of fuel capacity. But you weren’t riding far on those slick tires and without a headlight, so it will be fine.
Other cool components include the SC-Projects exhaust system, lowered inverted fork, custom Gilles rear-set foot pegs and controls, ABM clip-on handlebars and ABM steel braided brake lines and slick Kellermann bar end-mounted front turn signals.
This one-off bike might not be available to buy, but TW Steel hopes it has caught your interest in some of their watches.
