Some bikes are begging to be transformed when you customize them. Begging to be altered in both form and function, but the Bolt, or XV950 as they call it across the pond, is an awesome looking and riding bike from stock. It isn't trying too hard to be anything it isn't. It's just a simple, mid-ranged cruiser that looks great and is a bunch of fun to ride. It is for this reason that we love how much this bike maintains the spirit of the original bolt.

El Jabali by Maurer Motors in Switzerland was built for Yamaha's Yard Built Dealer Built program, which pits the best dealership mechanics and fabricators against eachother to build these insane custom bikes.

The custom tail section and number plate give this bike a flat track vibe, but the stance stays pure cruiser with the low seat and stock sized spoke wheels. The brown imitation leather lends a hand in giving this bike that old-school cruiser feel, with an old XVS650 gas tank with the tachometer mounted in the middle. Custom exhaust pipes were fabricated and wrapped, clubman handlebars were put on, and all custom lights and blinkers were equipped.

You're left with a custom cruiser that looks like it could have been factory built. Clean, classic custom. It is distinctly Yamaha, completely Bolt, and fully custom and unique.
