Bunker SR 500

The Yamaha SR500 is a primitive but robust machine & it’s the top choice for light and handy bike forTurkish roads. At The Bunker custom motorcycles shop did astonishing job to fabricate custom fuel tank, the fenders and engine guard are hand-made, and there’s a new loop at the back of the frame—fitted at an angle to allow for longer-travel, 14.25” Progressive Suspension shocks. The engine has been rebuilt with big valves and now breathes through a 38 mm Mikuni Sudco racing carb and a K&N filter.

They added Dime City Cycles muffler, high flow, dual feed oil lines from Motolanna, there’s a new CNC-cut handlebar clamp, the electrics are now under the custom brown leather seat; they take up minimal room, thanks to a battery eliminator kit.

This is a clean and beautifully detailed build—with a cool elegance that will stand out amidst the hustle and bustle of Istanbul.
