Uniquely ideal: Yamaha RX 135 FAITH Cafe Racer. Practically, these two terms are sufficient to define this Srikanth Naidu-built Yamaha RX 135 custom. He spent three months building this stunning cafe racer, crafting each and every component to ensure a flawless finish. Srikanth, a 19-year-old, is making progress toward realising his goal of becoming a custom motorbike maker.
This ordinary Yamaha RX 135 with the name “Faith” is far more than one may expect. He intended to completely rebuild the RX 135 on his own because the motorcycle’s ageing parts were ruining its appeal. The outcomes are undoubtedly exciting!
The nicest thing that could have happened to RX 135 was the choice of Matt Grey. The old tyres were replaced with these brand-new directional tyres, which perfectly complement the cafe racer aesthetic. The addition of spoke wheels, a black-finished frame, and a meticulously cleaned engine further enhanced this built’s amazing appearance.
With only the Yamaha RX 135’s functional parts, weight loss is rather obvious. In keeping with Cafe Racer tradition, the rear of the frame was modified to accommodate a single seat. The rear terminates deftly with a cowl, and the brake light, positioned on the right suspension, safely goes to the ride side. Even the gasoline tank top is made to order.
The motorcycle’s front is equipped with an aftermarket disc brake, a clip-on handlebar from a Royal Enfield Continental GT, and thicker front forks than those included with the Yamaha RX 135 as standard equipment. The factory exhaust system is replaced with a completely custom-built one.
To eliminate even more weight, the fenders have been taken off. Faith can develop into a dual seat Bobber with a relaxed sitting position and an added pillion seat with the addition of a bar type handlebar installation. Congrats to Srikanth Naidu for building such a stunning motorcycle.
