Yamaha's Yard Built Returns to Taiwan for the Rough Crafts Experience.
Lining up to kick-off 2017 in true custom style, Yamaha's Yard Built programme returns to the workshops of master Taiwanese builder Winston Yeh of Rough Crafts fame. Having set a high level of expectation following his impressive build of the XJR1300, The Guerilla Four, in 2015, Yamaha chose Rough Crafts for the first custom build of this year with the Sport Heritage range middleweight champion XSR700 as a base.
With no cutting or welding to the frame Winston was free to work his signature style magic on the punchy, mid-range XSR700. The result is not one, but two masterpieces. The simple-to-change kits transform the XSR700 in under an hour between a café racer style street machine, 'The Corsa Scorcher' and a dirt track ready scrambler style bike, 'The Soil Scorpion'.
