    XJ900 Cafe Racer...
    Build by Greg Hageman based upon a design brief that asked, "If Yamaha had evolved the xj line more towards a naked, cafe racer motif, what might the xj900 SECA look like circa 1999?"

    Great bike! Can you tell me what the tail light is? I am working on restoring/updating a 550 seca and really love the recessed/clean look of it. Amazing effort!
    1. Mike Martens
      Hello Boris. It is just a universal tail light... I bought it on ebay I believe. Search "Cafe Racer tail light lamp universal" and you will see several. The one I have was LED, has turn indicator functions within it (just blinks one side or the other), and came with a license plate mount that was detached and relocated. Hope that helps. All the best.

    Beautiful bike, what are those stunning spoked wheels off and is it still shaft drive? So many questions when looking at it...
    1. Mike Martens
      Yes, still a shafty. There were a few yamsters to have a laced rear wheel and shaft final drive, so one of of those donated a hub and the rim/spokes are custom (17 x 4.25 wide). It is not east to get the offset right. Greg Hageman has perfected the conversion over time. He is a huge talent.

      Thanks for that info, I'm about to start on an XJ 650 and keep imagining it with spokes.

    That is very nice looking. Where in the world is the battery hidden?
    1. Mike Martens
      Thanks. The battery is a lithium unit tucked inside the tail cowl (which like the tank came from a 550).
