SSB Performance Custom
ASUMATI, the SSB Performance Custom class winner in San Mateo, CA., was designed by Jim Giuffra, owner of AFT Customs, for Jackson Rancheria Casino Hotel and built by the AFT Models. ASUMATI translated from Miwuk means grizzly bear, the monarch of the forest. The bike started out as a Honda VT750ST and evolved into a 750cc Honda Street Tracker-style custom bike with race inspired suspension, Supermoto handlebars, and HIPO engine upgrades. The AFT Models do about 70% of the work. These ladies weld, lace wheels, fabricate, and race. Taking 2nd place was Javon Samonte with his custom 2004 Yamaha R1 LE. Completing the podium was Liam Shubert taking 3rd with his 1996 Honda CBR900RR called Darth Blader.
