The Slim Bike Is Customized for a Sunshine State of Mind

1978 Yamaha SR500 by Shaun Brandt


Upon his arrival in Florida, Canadian bike builder Shaun Brandt of Federal Moto quickly teamed up with Powder Monkees’ Mike Muller customize a new daily ride. The pair settled on a 1978 Yamaha SR500 body for its slim build and versatility. They then swapped in a Yamaha fuel tank and Honda headlight from the 1970s and updated the paint job with a smooth, natural palette. To finish the bike's build, they added chunky tires with wide treading—perfect for both beachside cruising and taking the Brandt’s new ride to the streets.
