With spring well and truly underway Yamaha heads to Istanbul in Turkey to collaborate with a new member of the Yard Built family, Bunker Custom Motorcycles. Brothers Can and Mert Uzer are not your typical custom bike builders, Can a high level skateboarder with the Vans Turkey Skateboarding Team and Mert transferring to building bikes full-time following a career in Digital Advertising.
The two first caught the attention and interest of Yamaha Motor Europe with their distinctive 1982 Yamaha SR500 build. The super clean classic Yamaha custom screamed handmade and raw, and most appropriately was definitely built to ride. As a result the collaboration with Yard Built was born and the two have been busy over the last few months adding their Bunker Custom style to the Yamaha XSR700, delivering a rugged, tracker style machine that looks ready to tackle the beaches, mountain roads and anything else you want to throw at it.
