The other Yard Builts…
Our pick of Yamaha’s Yard Builts that took the Wheels and Waves Biarritz challenge
XSR700 by Walzwerk Motorcycles
They say: supercool tracker from Germany. We say: candy red tank embellished with nickname ‘The Apex Ruler’. Designed and ridden by Triumph-cup racer Marcus Walz.
XSR900 by OMT Garage
They say: less-is-more highperformance scrambler from Italy. We say: the original frame is still there under that polish. Loud three into one exhaust is right thigh health and safety issue.
XSR700 by Jigsaw Customs
They say: ’70s flat tracker from Greece inspired by TZ750. We say: this builder makes four custom bikes a year – the finish is perfect. Word on the street, Jigsaw are asking €30,000+.
