Classified Moto 1982 Yamaha XV920R “Shreveport Slammer”

Published By

To those who love shredding, it is a way of life. From noisy clouds of dust to the raging silhouettes emerging from them, open terrain offers true freedom. 

Of course, sometimes the wilderness is a little more challenging than ideal salt flats or uncarved desert dunes. Yet, every adventurous mile feels equally liberating. Going places where others do not dare venture is half the fun.

Some explorers prefer something with at least four wheels to lead the charge while others fly under the radar with a motorbike. The vessel is only a means to an end, but there is no doubt that a two-wheeler offers versatile capability without fear.

Many riders argue the best bikes offer the option of superior wet traction with capable off-road versatility. This bike can handle a little bit of both. When it comes to handling twisties in the rain, the Classified Moto 1982 Yamaha XV920R “Shreveport Slammer” says, “bring it on”.

Sporting an Avon Supermoto wet rear tire, this is a very capable muscle bike. Japanese bike enthusiasts will notice this bike features wheels from a Yamaha and a Honda while sporting a Kawasaki rear shock. Why? Well, that’s Classified.

With a fiery orange and black color scheme, it’s ready to rip through almost any weather in its way. The custom stainless exhaust growls to clear a path ahead. One twist of the grip and this bike screams.

Clearing the way is a 2010 Yamaha YZF-R6 front end with a CM conversion and upper clamp. A Modified Benelli Mojave 360 custom tank adds the finishing touch.

It’s not surprising that 4×4 enthusiast, Wes Malmay, chose Classified Moto to build such a versatile custom bike. The end result is another masterpiece from the custom motorcycle builder. If Wes encounters anything this bike can’t tackle, he probably has a 4×4 that can.

Classified Moto is now accepting inquiries about a limited run of Shreveport Slammer replicas. The best part about building a custom motorcycle is the opportunity to do it your way. Classified Moto is ready to help make your dream bike come true.
