Japanese custom motorbike builder Motor Rock needs no introduction at Moto Rivista. Bikes from their custom Yamaha SR400 portfolio have been featured quite a few times on Moto Rivista.
Keita Kobayashi founder and owner of Motor Rock has taken an unique approach on a stock Yamaha FZ1 and transformed it into an aggressive looking beast.
The Japanese manufactured Yamaha FZ1 is a street motorcycle which first came to production in 2001. The FZ1 was produced to compete in the American market. The stock Yamaha FZ1 features five valves per cylinder and liquid cooled engine with high peak horsepower with 6-speed transmission. The FZ1 was loaded with lots of power, experienced handling with great brakes.
Lets get down to Motor Rocks customized Yamaha FZ1, the frame of the stock bike was heavily modified to adapt the new look. At the rear the bike features an in-house fabricated rear cowl. At the front the bike has been crowned with a custom windshield. Motor Rock has also added a one off custom seat. The paint job on this custom Yamaha FZ1 was done by Ton-Up Paintworks.
I am sure there is a lot more work involved in this build but for now this is all the details we have. The pictures can tell a lot more, please fire up the image gallery and take a closer look!
