1991 Kawasaki Zephyr 750 | November Motorcycle Customs

Can a Kawasaki motorcycle be made greener and meaner? Hell yes, it can! And November Customs has done just that. 

The Kawasaki Zephyr 750 that you see before you started out life as a pretty average looking sports cruiser (see below). But for custom bike builders, average looks just will not do. And the heyday of motorcycle style for many was during the 1960s and 70s. However, although these classic motorcycles were a treat for the eyes, they somewhat lacked in outright performance and reliability.

For these reasons, both custom motorcycle builders and main manufactures are restyling modern motorcycles to look like they’re from the days of old - and we thank them for their service. 

It could be argued that Royal Enfield and Triumph are the masters of the retro-modern look nowadays, but Yamaha has entered the frame with their XSR700 XTribute, and so has Kawasaki with the W800. Retro-modern is becoming viral, and despite the custom bike market being saturated with these machines, they still look awesome.

It’s hard to ignore Custom Zephr’s luminescent sparkly [oh-so Kawasaki] green colour scheme, which wraps around the handmade steel cafe racer fairing. The entire bodywork, from the front faring to the tail, is all one piece of hand-formed steel. Such a style required the original tank to be heavily chopped and reshaped, but the end result is simply stunning. To finish off their fabrication of the gas tank, they added a one-off, heavily polished, aluminium latching fuel cap. 

Although it doesn’t look like a mongrel, there are numerous parts lifted from other motorcycles fitted to this custom Zephr, such as: 

Ducati 848 front forks 

Ducati 748 clip-ons

Aprilia front calipers and Brembo discs

Triumph front and rear wheels

Honda CB900 swingarm

BMW S10000RR end can 

Aprilia RSV rearsets

There’s very little not too like about this November Customs Zephr 750. There are numerous intricate details all over the bike that make it stand out from the crowded retro-modern custom scene. Oh, and if you fancy owning this bike for yourself, then it’s currently on sale!

The owner is asking for just under £10k. And anyone who’s fiddled about with a few spanners knows it’s worth way more than that.
