Winston Yeh's Rough Crafts is back at it again, and his latest project is perfect for cruising the streets of Gotham. Called the "Yard Built XSR700", it's based on the XSR700 and features an X2E fully adjustable remote control digital suspension, making it adjustable on the fly for tarmac riding or muddy terrains. He then designed a set of triple clamps that can run a set of YZF-R1 forks along with an R1 axle, brakes and wheels designed for the R1 front end. "The XSR was an amazing base to start with. I love the tubular frame of the 700, and the power to weight ratio is perfect for a motorcycle.
