Motorcycle Trader’s Custom Yamaha SR400


In conjunction with Mid Life Cycles, Motorcycle Trader is building a sweet street-scrambler version of Yamaha’s iconic SR400 and you can win it!

The customised cool kid will be reliable not radical, fun not Fuzz-bait and importantly, it will be registrable in every Australian state and territory.

We’ll be covering the entire build story in Motorcycle Trader so you’ll be able to see the new bike in all its stages of development. And, you can follow the links to each update below in case you missed anything.


The progress so far on the SR400:
