Classic, Creative, and Wild - Yamaha Scorpio Caferacer

Hello KustomGaras, my name is Faisal, but you can call me Ichal or Ichul.

A Custom Yamaha Scorpio with a Personal Touch

So, this motorcycle was actually already customized when I bought it, but it was still pretty basic compared to what it is now. It's looking pretty good now, if I do say so myself! The workshop that did the original customization is called Hara Garage, and it's located in South Jakarta.

The base motorcycle is a 2006 Yamaha Scorpio. I've always been interested in owning a custom motorcycle, ever since I started college. I studied Visual Communication Design (DKV) at a private university in Jakarta (around 2014). My senior students all had custom motorcycles, ranging from caferacers to japstyle, trackers, choppers, and street cubs. I thought it looked really cool when they rode their bikes. They had this aura of coolness and masculinity, and the sound of their exhausts was amazing.

From Dream to Reality

So, I started thinking, "Man, I wish I had a motorcycle like that. I'd look so cool and get all the attention on the road."

I couldn't ask my parents to buy me one, so I decided to focus on my studies first, graduate as soon as possible, get a job, and then buy one with my own money. That was the plan.

Caferacer Style: A Personal Choice

The concept for my motorcycle is a caferacer. To be honest, I don't have any specific inspiration for this design. I just like the look of caferacers, even though they can be uncomfortable to ride because of the hunched-over riding position.

Almost everything on my motorcycle is custom. The only original parts left from the Yamaha Scorpio are the engine, drums, and switches. Everything else is custom-made or aftermarket parts.

Favorite Feature: A Personal Touch

My favorite part of this motorcycle is the right and left side covers, because they have the name "Brandon" on them. There's a bit of a story behind why I named this motorcycle "Brandon". To be honest, I don't know why I chose that name, but it just seemed to fit this motorcycle. It's just as handsome as the name Brandon is.

The biggest challenge with this motorcycle was probably the time I took it to work and parked it in an open-air parking lot. It just had to rain that day, and when I got off work, my motorcycle had been soaked in the rain. Water got into the carburetor, so I couldn't accelerate, and when I tried to start it, the engine would sputter. I took it to a workshop, but they didn't want to take it because they would have to open up the carburetor. So, I called my friend and asked him to tow me. On the way, I met a guy riding an RX-KING motorcycle, and thank goodness, he was willing to help me. He got my motorcycle running again. That was the DOWN part.

The Joy of Attention

The UP part is that I definitely get a lot of attention when I ride this motorcycle. I even had an old man give me a thumbs up once, haha.

I still have a lot of things I want to do to this motorcycle. I'm only about 50% done with what I have in mind. I want to replace some of the parts with new ones, repaint the motorcycle because the current paint job isn't that great, and install a fairing to make it a full-fairing caferacer.
