Kruz & Co’s Yamaha XJR 1200
Sometimes, all it takes is a little money-crisis to spur creativity. Only the third bike ever built by Belgian shop Kruz & Co, an incredibly tight budget led to some brilliant creative fixes. The rear subframe got the bulk of the work, improving geometry and allowing most of the wiring to be hidden under the seat, but then the seat itself was taken from a Ducati. The fuel tank may look great, but it’s really 100% original except for the paint, and in back, the tail light came from a freaking caravan. Yeah.
