Avon Tyres 100th Anniversary Yamaha R1

Custom Yamaha R1

As part of its 100th Anniversary, Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America has built a one-of-a-kind custom motorcycle, a 2011 Yamaha YZF-R1.

The custom-built anniversary R1, which was unveiled at the 2011 Dealer Expo last month, showcases custom paint by renowned airbrush artist Carlos Avelar.

The custom motorcycle also features many top-name product sponsors as Avon Motorcycles Tyres reaches the 100th-year milestone: Yamaha/Yamaha GYTR, BST Carbon Fiber Wheels, Brock’s Performance, Akrapovic, Saddlemen, Graves, Race Tech, ASV, BMP, Bazzaz, K&N, Driven Racing, Avon Grips, Goodridge, Gilles Tooling, Pit Bull, Hot Bodies, and Sharkskinz.

Avon Motorcycle Tyres says all re-working on the custom R1 was completed by Chris Costa at Yamaha of Cucamonga with transportation by Kendon Trailers and JC Motors Motorcycle shipping, and photos by Go Pro.

Sukoshi Fahey (Sales & Marketing Manager, Avon Motorcycle Tyres, North America) says: "This has been an incredible project for us, and we were so pleased to realize its completion in time to unveil this stunning motorcycle at the Dealer Expo this year.

"Our sincere thanks go out to all of our contributors for making this project possible, including a special thank you to airbrush artist Carlos Avelar for the breathtaking custom paint."
