YAMAHA R1 BACK TO THE FUTURE

The Yamaha R1 changed the sportbike industry when it came out in 1998. And this is one of those early carburator R1 that we have here, but as you can see, with some little modifications.

R1 Back To The Future backstory

Lazareth was known in the motorcycle universe before the cool hip custom culture was even a thing, and specialized in creating crazy suspension geometry and swapping car engines on bike. Back in 2008, french film director Mathieu Kassovitz asked him to create some bikes for his upcoming anticipation movie Babylon A.D staring Vin Diesel. To be honest the movie didn't went well, but the bikes were perfect.

About that build

One of those Babylon A.D was this R1 that Ludovic Nazareth has "recycled" and updated with a full carbon fiber treatment, two single-arms and Rizoma accesories all over. The coolest detail must be this trademarked Lazareth brake light integrated to the exhaust pipe. The front suspension and brakes geometry may look scary to you, but it is actually thought to be more stable and progressive than on the stock R1.
