Etik’s Yamaha TR1
Etik's a shop in Normandy, France that’s run by a couple of guys obsessed with vintage bikes. When picking the foundation for a new project, they’re not at all obsessed with a bike’s brand, but simply that they can make it a rolling work of art. To that end, the back half of this Yamaha was overhauled, as was the entire electrical system. Ultimately, it’s a clean bike that’s worthy of anyone’s garage…which is good, since it’s currently for sale.
