‘T004 MooN’ Custom Yamaha XS650 by Thrive Motorcycles

Wood-burning stoves are exceptional in Indonesia, just like this bike. Barata Dwiputra, lead builder of Thrive Motorcycles had to re-imagine a classic 1968 yamaha XS650 starting from the idea of a stove. Putra Agung explains: “We asked the client, ‘What’s on your mind right now?’ and he answered, ‘A wood-burning stove.’” The stove in question turned out to be a Mendip Loxton, an angular English creation usually finished in a dark charcoal enamel.
