Inspired by Yamaha's Big Bear Scrambler from the '60s, bike builder Jeff Palhegyi's SCR950 could have easily existed in the same era with its rugged and timeless styling. Palhegyi took his favorite elements from the Big Bear with details like the inlaid Yamaha logo, rubber knee grips, two-tone paint, and the custom exhaust with heat shields. 

Other features include Duane Ballard leather-wrapped Renthal handlebars, Fox RC1 Podium 14-inch performance rear shocks, a shot glass rear taillight lens, custom sub-frame and side panels, custom vintage off-road style front and rear fenders, Shinko Adventure Trail tires, and Ride Wright 40-spoke aluminum soft lip wheels.
