I quite often see Auto Fabrica bikes on the Internet. A great build and professional photography work make a photo look ‘addictive’ and the build spreads easily throughout the Web among motorcycle enthusiasts, hitting every possible social media platform. No doubt AF guys totally deserve it – what they do is truly amazing and their bikes please the eye.

According to the guys, this Yamaha (simply named ‘Type 4’) exists due to the success of its predecessor – Type 3. Type 3 was built around the same model – SR250 and brought to AF a lot of attention along with another commission. That’s how the whole project started.

In order to move forward with anything in life, one must learn to push boundaries and be ready and hungry for new knowledge and experience. It’s especially true among creative minds and artists. I’ve said many times that custom bike building is a form of art and it must be appreciated and treated like one. AF team say that working on this SR250 allowed them to master new skills and gain valuable experience.

Type 4 comes with a fully rebuilt engine, lightened frame with a rear loop modified, custom-made aluminum tank, 18″ chunky wheels re-laced with stainless steel spokes and custom-made seat. The bike also got new electric wirings and hand-bent stainless steel exhaust.
