Camouflage, first by the French army during War I, was originally intended to hide or soldiers in the field. The camouflage job on Randy Kleber’s eye-catching Yamaha R1, featuring a Carolina basecoat with alternating white and midnight blue has exactly the opposite effect. And the sun sets and the custom Gator show-thrus built into the fairing and tailsection light up by 38 individual LEDs, plus tubes and strobes), it’s all on this R1.

Kleber is co-owner of a custom shop called Customs (www.gatorcustoms.net) and the inventor of Glass, a one-of-a-kind process integrates transparent panels with electronic lighting a bike’s bodywork. Since R1 is supposed to be a rolling showcase for Glass, Kleber went to lengths to create a custom able to draw attention.

In addition to the crazy camouflage (done by the owner), Kleber upgraded the frame’s finish a hand-polish job, along the swingarm, forks and the edge of the rims. Powdercoated rearsets are the only understated element.

the fairing lies an internally R1 engine fitted with a high-mount full exhaust and a Power Commander ignition to coax a few more horses out of the stable. Steadying the gallop at speeds is a Scotts steering a nice touch since bike sees serious time.

In preparation for next Kleber is heading to the performance bar and a bottle of nitrous from Express to make the engine more intoxicating, plus an air too. If you’re out and about Chicago during this R1’s summer tour of you will have no trouble it. But you may have a little trouble up.-Yan Dominic SearcPro Power

If you want to talk about streetbikes, they don’t much crazier than Lu Pro Street Suzuki. Completely by the Thornton, Colorado, resident, Suzuki GS-powered turbo punches out an altitude-corrected 419 horsepower and has as fast as 8.27 seconds at 178 mph a wheelie bar!) in the quarter-mile at Speedway’s mile-high dragstrip in Colorado.

Oh yeah, the bike is with turn signals and start and is 100 percent street Freakin’ insane.

Starting a rigid chrome-moly frame by Stoddard on a custom jig, the looks like a refugee Pro Mod staging lanes, all thanks to FRP fiberglass bodywork and a massive, Mickey Thompson ET rear That’s right, kids-no necessary. The bike moves a Pro Mod racer, too, with a assembled turbo motor.

Beginning with 1981 GS1100 cases, Stoddard an MTC 1428cc Big Block with MTC pistons and rings, topped a turbo-ported four-valve head by Mountain Performance) with PM valve springs and ARP bolts and Downstairs is a Pearson Racing and shot-peened connecting rods-all up to withstand the 32 pounds of boost the turbo with a Mr. Turbo can produce.

What’s left on stripped-down slingshot is pretty forks are hand-polished aftermarket pieces raked out five and topped with Drag bars. The brakes are Grimeca front and rear with lines, and the paint-also done by a PPG Harlequin product, a blue-to-red that changes colors in

It’s one sick street if not necessarily practical, which have contributed to Stoddard selling the bike to Mark of Denver. Or not. As bad as it sounds, I building bikes almost than riding them, says.

And as expensive as these are, you usually have to one to build the next one. we’re also sitting on of Stoddard’s latest project, a full-custom Aprilia Mille R we to share with you a few months now. It’s not quite as outrageous as this 419-hp Pro but it’s every bit as clean and and, we’d guess, a bit more practical for a Sunday-morning Mountain ride.-Aaron Frank


This fly GSX-R custom to us from Ryan Seigler of Washington. It’s a 2001 upgraded with a GSX-R750 front fork for better The motor is mostly stock for an M4 full exhaust system and a air filter from KN.; The key here is custom paint by RJ; in Buckley, Washington.

Using hues from House of the RJ; crew devised a candy basecoat laid over white scallops and airbrushed graphics on the front fender and air dam. Setting off the show-quality job are plenty of aluminum parts by the owner himself, including the swingarm, subframe, forks, clamps and rearsets.

Final include a genuine leather wrapped by McFarland Custom and a carbon-fiber top triple clamp and bar ends. Seigler tells us only had time to enter one (the Seattle Roadster since finishing the project, but reports his handiwork was good to take home a best-in-class Not a bad result for the first time Frank
