Yamaha YZF 750 WSB 'Teardrop' Super sport race tail
This is a little something we did for Vance & Hines
in 1996. V & H crew chief Jim Leonard requested we design
an aerodynamic seat assembly for Daytona and we were happy to
oblige. We started with the stock YZF seat and grafted on an Aprilia-type
tail section that is particularly adept at closing the envelope
at high speed. It turned out to be one cool looking item. Unfortunately,
when the Yamaha engineers saw it, they said, "NO WAY! It
looks too much like a Suzuki." Too bad for Vance & Hines.
Their loss is your gain. The tail section uses the stock upholstery
and fits right onto the stock YZF chassis. For street use however,
some fabrication would be necessary to mount a tail light.
