Cafe Racer “Orange Crush” is a custom project of Italian Christian Moretti from the workshop “Plan B”. He used as a basis for motorcycle Yamaha XV750, as well as the iconic fuel tank of Benelli Mojave. Today, Yamaha XV projects are quite common, but the bike Christian is something really special.
For many years, the orange fuel tank Benelli Mojave hanging on the wall in the workshop of Christian. One day, a customer came into the workshop “Plan B” and asked to alter the bike Yamaha. So, Christian decided to finally use the fuel Mojave tank.
Christian Moretti says that “I have to thank Greg Hageman and Classified Moto for being the first to put the Mojave tank on a Virago, but I wanted to push it further.”
