Inspired by ‘70s enduro bikes and the TT500 Cross, this ‘Bandit Run’ custom Yamaha TT 600 pays homage to the past in style. But it also stands out on its own thanks to its clean lines, eye-catching design, and distinctive personality. Built by 25-year-old Nicolò Pego, this custom build shows that talent and passion go a long way.
The base is a 1997 Yamaha TT600, which Pego disassembled completely before shaping the chassis to give it a more graceful silhouette. The bike features a rare tank sourced from a 1970 Yamaha YZ125 as well as a custom TIG-welded double exhaust system, courtesy of Pego’s uncle. Minimalist and modern despite its retro look, ‘Bandit Run’ also boast an integrated LED light strip at the front. The rear features a thin line of red lights, just under the edge of the seat. As a finishing touch, the bright yellow and black palette gives the bike a cool vintage vibe. Photographs© Elisa Carpentiere – Photography.
