Awesome 1993 Zephyr 750 custom has real class.

Check out this awesome cafe racer-type custom built from a 1993 Kawasaki Zephyr 750.


The boys at Bikeexif came across this bike built by Portugal’s Ton Up garage. The bike is called ‘Zephyrus’ and we love the way a relatively modern motorcycle has been turned into this sort of thing.


Pedro Oliveira and the Ton Up crew have lifted the Zephyr to a new level. The aircooled 738 cc engine is strong, and with 75hp in stock form, has been perked up with free-flow air filters and a sharp-looking exhaust, with a re-jet to match.


There’s a new rear subframe, a simple café racer-style tail unit with a compact taillight, and a new leather single seat. Revised side panels cover the electrics and battery, and there’s a shorter fender up front. The stock footpegs are gone, replaced by rearsets, with clip-ons from LSL accentuating the sporty riding position. Blacked-out wheels are now shod with Michelin racing wets. And if you think the stance of the Zephyr has improved, you’re right—the front suspension has been shortened a little at the front for a slightly more aggressive stance.
