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

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

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.

An Edelbrock Pro-Flow 4 fuel-injection system controls and monitors the engine components. It also features a CVF serpentine pulley system, K&N filters and an aluminum radiator.

The engine is backed by a C4 automatic transmission built to handle 400hp and includes Kevlar bands, Redline clutches, a 2,000-rpm stall converter and Dana 20T transfer case with twin-stick conversion. Power goes to a Ford 9-inch rear end with a Dana 30 front differential, WARN locking hubs and 3.50-ratio gears.

This SUV was finished in a new Bronco Area 51 Blue with the original Bronco Wimbledon White hardtop, roll cage, dash, grille and accessories, and rides on color-matched Ford steel wheels wrapped in Toyo Mud Country tires. The cabin includes high-back bucket seats with a console, a rear seat that folds up, shoulder seat belts and a Vintage Air system for heating and cooling.
