This is a conversion of a 1998 Yamaha XVS 650 Drag Star (Star V Star 650 in the US) called the Beachstar. It’s been described as a cross between a café racer and a board tracker. With or without the 60’s looking fairing this bike looks awesome.

The Beachstar was built by a German named Mario Baer. Baer needed only one summer to modify this old 1998 Yamaha Drag Star, working only in the evenings.
Thats impressive work. It’s not just a show bike either, it’s also a commuter. He rides the Beachstar to work nearly every day and the Beachstar was won some impressive shows including the world-renowned 2008 Intermot show in Cologne.

We are looking forward to seeing Baer’s next project which he describes as "Hmmm…something exceptionally spectacular with a huge rear wheel and a small front wheel. Something completely crazy!". *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PIPEBURN]
