1999 Yamaha TW125 By Atelier Medusa

To call the Yamaha TW125 a middling bike is perhaps giving it a bit too much credit. It’s not that it was an entirely horrible dual-sport motorcycle, but it lacked power and was a bit bumbling. Despite its obvious flaws, the folks at Atelier Medusa believed they could breathe new life into a 1999 example — and, if you ask us, they most certainly did.

Completely unrecognizable from the donor bike, this revamped custom moto is a comparative work of art with its retooled angular science fiction-inspired body, cleaned-up tail section, vastly improved riding position, and aggressive front end. As you might imagine, the work was extensive — including the addition of a custom-made armored gas tank, custom swing arm, Ohlins Multistrada rear shock, and gorgeous BMW Xenon headlight housed inside of a tractor piston (giving it a look almost like a machine gun barrel). It’s no street rocket, but if the TW125 looked more like this, we bet more people would remember it fondly.
