Custom motorcycle builder Spirit of the Seventies is a company based southeast of London, England. They build seriously beautiful motorcycles that are reminiscent of the 1970's designs they are based on with modern touches. The S7 is a recent design based on a Yamaha XS750.
Spirit of the Seventies is run by Tim Rogers and Kevin Taggart. Rogers and Taggart owned many modern motorcycles, but wanted something unique. When they couldn't find exactly what kind they were looking for, they decided to start building their own. While many custom shops produce motorcycles meant to be looked at, Spirit of the Seventies builds motorcycles that beg to be ridden. The XS750 redesign called the S7 is one of their latest projects.
The forks have been replaced with ones from a Yamaha YZF-R6. The brakes come off of a R1. It has adjustable Hagon shocks on the shortened rear suspension. The completely rebuilt engine uses a Co-Built exhaust system.
A carbon fiber tail section and leather seat pad complete the cafe racer style. Modern lights, speedometer unit, and turn signals finish off the design.
