Speakeasy Motors Work

favaro1favaro2favaro3favaro3bisEvan Favaro just celebrated his 23rd birthday and already gets a second feature in my website. Not surprising when you know than Evan Favaro was only 12 years old when he started to build small custom 2 stroke race motors from scratch for himself and his friends to race around town. Instead of video games, he bought himself a welder when he was only 14, welded a chain into a steering wheel for a go-kart.

favaro5In his Speakeasy Motors shop in Paramus, New Jersey Evan built this cool 1978 Yamaha XS650 with a 2007 Suzuki GSX-R 750 front end, custom made neck and axle, modified hub, fully rebuilt motor, hand fabricated tail and tank from scratch. All fabrication, powder coating, and assembly was done in house. Bob Folz of Toon Town Paint and Bert Quimby of Bert Graphix, both from Riverdale, New Jersey, did all the painting.

Hard work is paying off. Not only Evan’s young shop is busy but professionals also agree that his creations are very special. Recently Speakeasy Motors won First Place in Modified Street Class at J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Bike Show.

    Every time I see one of the old Yammy 650 motors; I am reminded of my first full road bike. Like they say; you always remember the first one. 🙂

    Yep first bike too. Mine was a 78 650 Special black with Gold nameplate it was the first Jap cruiser which started the whole metric cruiser thing.

    Nice looking bike. mmm maybe i should get out and look for one of these old bikes and do something with it. But will look for the 79 or later version since the 78 has points which i remember having to change yearly.

    Anyone else notice that there is dirt on the tires? Like it’s as if this beautiful bike is actually ridable? LOL

    Great work Evan. I love the attention to detail.

    My first street bike was a 350 Sprint. Moved up to a CB550 and then to Sportys when I turned 18. I see alot of the rehabbed 70s imports here in Phoenix. Makes you long for a simpler time.

    Thanks Cyril for showcasing quality work.
