Lazareth Yamaha YZF-R1

Published By

It’s possible you’ve seen this bike before. Not that you’d recognize it. Back in ‘08 it appeared in the Vin Diesel post-apocalyptic sci-fi film Babylon A.D. But then it got totaled in the final scene. Ludovic Lazareth, the custom bike builder who made a number of bikes for that film, as well as for many others, took back the charred hull (just a chassis and a motor) and got to work.

The result is a black, brawny café racer from the future. With its carbon fiber body, high and horizontal rear exhaust ringed with LED brake lights, and a mono swing arm in the back and the front, this bike is not trying to blend in. It’s made a long journey from stock bike to movie star to what you see before you. If you want it to make one more stop into your garage, Lazareth’s letting it go. For a price. Learn more here.
