Build by Redmax

Special parts Dirtylanesussex

tank/seat/bars/etc Redmax


We showed Steve's new 840 at the Ace this weekend and MCN jumped straight on it for a feature ! The bike has been a labour of love here and we could'nt wait to show it off to everyone . Steve (who supplies Yam spares - ) rode it in fron Sussex and reported nifty performance from his 840cc big bore motor combined with snappy handling from the lightweight bike - his smile said it all !

This Yam has an 840 cc motor , with H/C pistons mild cam , balancing /porting work , performance stainless pipes and dell'orto pumper carbs.

Vintage Yam DT360 tank , Bultaco Astro redmax seat , Redmax Flattrack bars , Tarozzi rearsets , Koso digi dash , R6 forks and four piston calipers , Mag wheels and Tracker tyres and a very funky paintjob complete the picture .

Steve was intimately involved with the build putting a lot of his heart into finding the right parts and desighning the paint , and it shows . Glenn here in the Redmax workshop conspiring to come up with some real neat signature items across the bike (rear lamp , chain gaurd , heat shields etc ). Credit where it's due .

An enjoyable build - we're looking forwards to Steve's next XS .... will it be a cafe racer or a bobber ?? ... keep tuned .

Steve Redmax .
