Custom cool: Tamworth Yamaha FZ1


The Tamworth FZ1. That blue-white paintjob looks damn cool!

The standard FZ1 isn’t such a bad thing, but UK-based Yamaha dealers, Tamworth have heated things up a bit with their special edition FZ1. There’s that blue-and-white Fiat-Yamaha paintjob to begin with, which looks very cool, and then there’s a load of aftermarket parts – Ohlins forks, Brembo brakes with radial-mount monobloc callipers, Akrapovic exhaust (with a Termignoni sticker!) and some YEC kit parts for the engine.

This particular bike belongs to the man who owns Tamworth Yamaha and is not for sale. However, if you live in the UK and want Tamworth to build a special Yamaha for them, they’d probably be happy to accommodate you. Visit their official website here for more details.
