    The Greasy Dozen: Spero Floro Yamaha SR500

    The Greasy Dozen: Spero Floro Yamaha SR500
    When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see and Spero Floro's submission was exactly that! Spero submitted a 1979 Yamaha SR500 into our cafe racer category, this specific model has been very popular in the custom world with builds ranging from choppers, scramblers to cafe racers.
    There was something different about Spero's submission, it was bare bones and clean looking, with tons of custom machined parts, it was intriguing. We selected Spero with hopes he would build an SR500 that stood apart from the rest, and he absolutely did it! Without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.

    The Greasy Dozen: Ron George Yamaha TX750

    The Greasy Dozen: Ron George Yamaha TX750
    When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see and Ron George's submission was exactly that! Ron submitted a 1974 Yamaha TX750A into our cafe racer category with the start of a beautiful hand shaped aluminum fairing, as soon as we saw his submission we were sold. Many of you may have never heard of the TX750, and that's not uncommon. The TX is a model you rarely see being customized, these bikes were notorious for having a oiling problem from the factory which would result in engine failure. But, with that being said, Ron caught our eye with the model, and his beautiful hand shaped body work. We wanted to see if he could turn this problem child into something spectacular! We have to tip our hats to Ron, he absolutely crushed it with this build and fixed the notorious oiling problem. Without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.

    The Greasy Dozen: DJ Snyder Suzuki Katana Chopper

    The Greasy Dozen: DJ Snyder Suzuki Katana Chopper
    When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see and DJ Snyder's submission was exactly that! DJ submitted a 2006 Katana into our chopper category and as soon as we saw his submission we were sold. Reading that line you might be scratching your head and thinking a Katana.. a chopper?.. how is this going to play out. We can assure you that DJ built an absolute beast of a chopper! We're used to seeing 60s, 70s and 80s platforms turned into choppers, so when we saw a 2006 sport bike submission with the plan to turn it into a chopper it really had us wanting to see the end result. We always question what will happen with the 90s/00's sport bikes, will they be used for custom platforms or will they die in a junk yard? DJ may have struck gold with this chopper build and we may start seeing more 90's and 00's choppers coming to light. Without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.

    The Greasy Dozen: Alex Krill Suzuki T500 Tracker
     When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see and Alex Krill's submission was exactly that! Alex submitted his Suzuki T500 into our tracker category and as soon as we saw his submission we were sold. The T500 isn't the most popular model from the 60s-70s, some may have never even heard of it, but believe it or not this was a 10 year production bike. Although they may not be the most popular model to build off of today, these bikes were commonly used in road race and flat track applications back in the 60s and 70s. With that being said, when we saw Alex was planning to build a street tracker we had to select him and see what he could do! Without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.
