Yamaha’s Yard Built series has shown off the talents of custom builders from all over Europe and elsewhere around the world and now after a successful competition last year, Yamaha is again opening the series up to its dealers to make the most amazing custom built bikes from its Sport Heritage Range
The competition actually pits both customisers and dealers against each other.and sees builds including the VMAX, XV950, SR400 and even the brand new XSR700. Yamaha Motor Europe is awarding special prizes to the best custom build in the following three engine categories; single-cylinder and parallel-twin, V-twin and V-four and finally inline-four.
There are some amazing bikes on display, including the German built Corniche d’Or, and the ‘sixtynine’ from Austrian dealer WS-Motorradtechnik OG. We’re actually quite suprised at how good most of the XSR700’s came out which will hopefully inspire some new entrants into customising with what is a comparatively affordable motorcycle.
You can find the Dealer Built entries online at www.yamaha-yardbuilt.com Take a moment to check out the entries in all their glory and read up on the modifications made then like to vote and share your favourites. Voting closes on the 31st March and the winning bikes will be shown at European Custom Motorcycle event later in the year.
Best of all, Yamaha will be opening up the competition to the public later in the year so start wrenching.
