Yamaha has a long history of building powerful sport bikes. Back in 1978, when the XS1100 was introduced (also called XS Eleven or XS11), it was the most powerful and largest displacement Japanese motorcycle on the market with an amazing 95hp, which is transferred to the rear wheel trough a shaft drive.

This creation comes from Vilnius Motor House, based in (what’s in a name) Vilnius, Lithuania. Owner Daris bought this ’79 XS1100 on an auction, and started customizing the bike. Daris had no clear building plan, he just “wanted to create a café racer of it”.
