Yamaha R1 Street Tracker from Gregg’s Customs

Yamaha R1 Street Tracker from Gregg's Customs



You know what a Yamaha R1 is all about, high power, cutting edge technology for the track and even though it’s not unusual for the custom guys to stretch the swingarms and mount 300 rear tires, it’s a track weapon, through and through. Well, suppose the track you have in mind is a one mile dirt track, then what? Obviously you need to look elsewhere, you could start with a Harley Sportster like many do or maybe an old XS650, those are popular, but if you’re Gregg DesJardins, you take a closer look at that R1 and start removing parts to see what’s underneath.



Gregg sent me some photos of his latest project, unveiled at the Indy Museum this past Friday to Kenny Roberts and Yamaha at the Yamaha Party. It’s a 2009 Yamaha R1 turned into a tracker. The tank has been cut down a lot, a new titanium subframe was fabricated, one of Gregg’s swingarms was installed, lots of handmade pieces were worked up and then it was given a high end paint job in the old Yamaha colors. The result, a one mile tracker with performance that will make you sit up and take notice.



With R1 power and a sit up style, nice wide bars and light weight, a guy could go prowling around for one of those V-Twin style trackers and surprise ‘em. Overkill? Not at all, it’s just what you need for a little fun.
Gregg says the bike is for sale, if someone is interested. He’s asking $40k but is willing to entertain serious offers.

Way too much chrome. The trellis work in front of the tank, under the seat and for the swingarm doesn't match the frame style and full-on dirtbike bars look ridiculous.
