SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – March 12, 2024 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, has launched its semester-long STEM initiative, Gearing Towards the Future presented by Honeywell. In partnership with the SciTech Institute, this community, education and outreach initiative focused on STEM education is designed to serve a leading role in encouraging and developing future automotive engineers and technicians through learning modules focused on teaching students how to solve problems and develop new skills using challenge-based projects.

“Gearing Towards the Future is an outstanding initiative designed to further enhance STEM education opportunities within our communities here in Arizona,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Barrett-Jackson is passionate about ensuring the growth and vibrancy of the collector car hobby and the automotive industry for generations to come, and it’s programs like this that create fun and engaging opportunities for our future community of automotive enthusiasts.”

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
