    hello everybody and happy new year

    Winter time here, wet and cold days therefore we need to occupy ourselves... we found this bike in our warehouse, Honda 125 Twin from the early 80's, owner unknown, so, well, let's go...



    we removed everything useless and put a Honda Rebel front fork and wheel, more stylish...



    then we modified the frame cause lower was better (we're tall guys though)



    we will put another headlight with Z bar stuff



    modified frame



    swing arm will be modified to put a bigger tire and wider rear wheel



    front view



    waiting for fuel tank and seat, both specially made or modified

    to be continued

    cheers

    Looking good.



    What is the new angle on the front forks?

    Hi

    I asked our skilled mechanic and he replied:

    "the angle of the fork allows the rider to look cool on the bike"

    Hi you all

    Update with a little change on the frame

    We will put a custom made smaller seat later

    The vintage BSA fuel tank we received was a little big and didn't fit the bike the way we expected, beautiful part though

    We'll keep it preciously in our recycle bin and it will be used for a next custom project







    We will use a bigger front tyre to increase the Bobber style.

    To be continued

    Cheers
