HARD YARDS. Russell Motorcycles? ?Resilience? Yamaha XSR700 Racer






Written by Martin Hodgson
The 1980s sure was a different time, and in an era of minimal rules and regulations motorsport was full of radical prototypes and financed largely by big tobacco. Greed was good, there were gnarly designs and Gurney flaps, and companies like Gitanes and Marlboro were branded everywhere. Turns cigarettes will kill and those funky shaped cars and bikes could be lethal too, with the motorcycle GP circuit claiming 14 lives in the ten years. But Spain’s Russell Motorcycles have found a way to have all the fun without the fatalities, building this stunning tribute to the dazzling decade from a new Yamaha XSR700.

It all makes even more sense with the bike built as part of Yamaha’s Yard Built program with the latest collection of bikes themed ?Back to the Future?. Knowing other builders would probably lean towards a Marty McFly looking contraption, Eduardo and Dani took the opportunity to recreate one of the classic racing liveries of French tobacco brand Gauloises, with a decade correct outrageous design. Understandably the two-man operation is ?very proud that Yamaha would think of us for this project.?

Knowing the general look they had in mind they then had the decision of just how far to go with the build, display piece, a full on show bike but not street legal ?or something that we can ride with it radical but having the opportunity of passing all the technical controls required to ride it on the roads. This was it!? exclaims Eduardo. Then the exciting day arrived with a brand new XSR700 delivered to their workshop, in the principality of Asturias, a region of northwest Spain and work could commence immediately.
Up on the lift the two lads got straight into ripping the bike apart, removing the seat and all the factory bodywork. Cutting up the chassis and fabricating a new subframe would make the fitment of the new panels they had planned much easier, but the decision was made to leave the entire chassis as it left the factory, so that the bike could be returned to stock in just a few hours. The rear section of the original tank remain, with the front half modified for changes to come and it all sealed up again.

While the tank was off the rear body panel was fabricated, stretching all the way from the very back of the bike, over the subframe and onto the shoulders of the fuel tank. Hand formed, the single piece is made from steel and can be easily unbolted with careful use of factory mounting points. Such a large piece took time, with it constantly being offered up to the frame and then back to the bench for fine tuning. The single piece also serves as the seat base with individual bits of EVA foam cut to serve as the seat and act as an integral part of the overall design.

Moving forward the side panels that act as number boards might be much smaller in size but proved to be the hardest part of the entire racer project. Made of steel they required a unique bunch of curves, folds and humps to clear the ele...
