Thrive’s Stovepipe Yamaha

View all 18 Photos

Thrive’s build of the 1968 custom Yamaha XS650 draws inspiration from an unlikely place: inside the home. Their custom bike references the form of the common wood stove, pairing a matte black body with long wheels. Lean as a stovepipe, the design boasts an overhauled engine and handmade bodywork, with details in matte black, dark brown, brass, and copper.
