In 2007, GC Customs’ Gregg DesJardins created a first-of-its-kind Streetfighter bike that represents the pinnacle of customization. A sophisticated Air-Cooled 1670cc V-Twin starting with his Yamaha Roadster Warrior, Desjardins meticulously handcrafted nearly every aspect of the bike. Standout features include a 4130 chromoly frame, a single-sided trellis-style swingarm with lightening holes, and an 8.5 x 18 inch GC rear wheel.
DesJardins’ ingenuity is evident in the bike’s braking system. He developed a midship-mounted rotor and countershaft caliper setup that meshed directly with his sprocket to maintain a clean rear wheel look. The front end features sportbike spec radial mount PM calipers and a cleverly integrated master cylinder reservoir hidden inside the handlebars.
This exceptional motorcycle has garnered widespread recognition, being featured in numerous magazines and websites. It was even awarded the title of Best Pro Built Yamaha at the 2008 U.S. Grand Prix held at Laguna Seca.
