Wrench Monkees Wrench A Yamaha 500 R.

yamaha5001yamaha5002yamaha5003While the United Nations Climate Conference is taking place in the beautiful Danish city of Copenhagen, not too far away from the politicians and scientists arguing over the warming of our planet, there is a crew of builders calling themselves the Wrench Monkees rebuilding and customize old bikes without any concern about the green house gas emissions they could produce. And why they would be? Restoring 5 bikes a year, they can’t be responsible for anything debated on the other side of the city. Please look somewhere else… Anyway, I already introduced you to these “Wrench Monkees” but since they have a new website and new cool pictures of their work, you should also go to Copenhagen to look at their interesting work like this restored/refreshed/customized Yamaha SR 500 very representative of the European old school riding scene.

    Great looking bike. The lines are clean and still maintain the retro look. I’ve had my students check out their website. They are impressed with what they see. We are lucky enough here in the states to be able to find some of these old metric classics still turnin up at garage sales or local dealers at reasonable prices. It makes it easier to start a project when a person can get into it right.
    Keep up the good work guys. You are inspiring a lot of young people out there.

    There website is in my favourites. They make clean customs. This SR500 is very reminisent of the Japanese street style.
