Motorcycle Yamaha XJ650 is not the best choice for custom-built bike, but Barcelona’s master David Gonzalez from “Ad Hoc Café Racers” was able to realize the full potential of a small Japanese bike. The project was at least unusual, although fully consistent with the corporate identity of “Ad Hoc”.
