Carlex Designs, a Polish company specializing in custom leather interiors for automobiles design “unconventional interiors and details in order to create a cohesive and mature design combined with the highest precision of performance.” The Yamaha V-Max 1700 shown here is an example of their handiwork applied to a motorcycle.


The Yamaha V-Max 1700 is a bold and devilishly powerful queen in the family of motorcycles, made for real enthusiasts, and those who can tame the machine in tough moments on the road.We took great care working on the V-Max 1700, as it is a true legend that has been conquering hearts of motorcycle fans for years. In Carlex Design, there is no space for half measures, so we went for jewelery solutions with a hint of pertness.The bike’s seat and gear shift levers have been trimmed with really thick black leather with rough stitching, which resembles the skin of a wild beast and perfectly corresponds with the character of the motorcycle. In the leather, ‘Carlex Handcrafted’, the official name of our limited series, has been burnt and plated with silver, which alludes to the meticulous finishing of the machine.”


The bodywork with the patina of industrial boilerplate apparently strikes a chord with those entertaining romantic imagery of a steel foundry, and has been a popular styling theme with some builders.
