Straight out of Japan xs650 cafe racer half-fairing

This Cool and original looking XS Belongs to Numa out of Japan. Numa sent a couple pictures of his bike in and then I e-mailed him back and asked if we could do a monthly feature on it. It was hard to communicate because neither of us could speak each other’s language. We used Google translator to talk back and forth a little bit and I was able to get a little bit of info on his bike.  So, I’ll try to sum up as best I can want Numa had to say about his new ride.

The bike was built by M/C UPPERが作りました.  It is sporting a crazy cool DUCATI 916 front half-fairing.  He is extremely happy with the way it turned out “I’m very happy.”

I’d like Ko, in Japan and the cowling is flaking paint a motorcycle gang that often
Because, custom and culture, a stranger is seen as a chopper motorcycle gang

    Sweet bike, I like the paint and the half fairing looks pretty sick. The helmet/goggle combo is also nice… very Mad Max. Haha

    Any idea what goggles those are? I’m a fan… also, anyone know who makes custom bratstyle seats here in the states?

  13. Jon September 13, 2009 at 10:23 am #

    I like that tank. Wonder what it is?

  14. dannyb September 13, 2009 at 10:36 am #

    from what i gather it is a “omars” tank. google “omars street tracker” and you’ll find it.

    I really dig his bike a lot! I’d love to get my hands on that seat for my café project…. Thanks for sending in the pics and doing the article with me Numa. I think you have a killer ride!

    that isn’t a 916 fairing. it’s a fairing of a ducati sport classic.

    either way. awesome bike!

  19. numa October 30, 2009 at 12:17 pm #

    Thank you for a lot of comment!

    firestone tires, pipes, small tank…
    this bike isn’t pure cafe racer.

    so people who like pure cafe racer may dislike this.

    but I love this bike & M/C UPPER’s works!

    Really love the Cafe-Racer/Mad Max mix style. A simple bike, with very good taste and looks.

    Great MOTO, but what are the sizes of your Firestone Deluxe Champion?

  29. MidwestMyriad June 24, 2011 at 10:02 pm #

    What tank is that? Harley XR or something similar?

  30. Aucbar June 14, 2012 at 5:55 pm #
