Lazareth back to the future yamaha YZF R1 custom motorcycle

dubbed ‘back to the future’, this custom motorcycle depicts the future of bike brand, yamaha. frenchman ludovic lazareth and his studio are no strangers to creating insane-looking vehicle’s, such as the bike built around a maserati V8 engine, or the car fused with a motorcycle. the french designer has now modified a 1999 yamaha ‘YZF R1′ motorcycle into this extroverted café racer.

the lazareth ‘back to the future’ motorcycle was first customized by ludovic to be filmed on set of the vin diesel film ‘babylon A.D.’ about ten years ago. during the past year he has brought his ‘ex-movie star’ out of retirement, and transformed it into a futuristic interpretation of the road bike. with zero restrictions on the build specification, the ‘back to the future’ was clad completely in carbon fiber. it features a reflective carbon fiber fuel-tank, while its original yamaha ‘YZF R1′ frame remains.
