There was a time when I would have poked fun at this bike mercilessly. It's not anything: it's not a cafe regardless of the bars, it's not quite a bobber though either. No stretched chopper front end so that's out. Rat!? No, though what little paint here is satin black there's simply too little junk heaped on the bike.
|Take a little time to absorb the details that abound on this scoot!|
|A pretty simple formula at work here.....|
Take a closer look at the pics shown here. There are a lot of interesting details that slip past the untrained eye.
|One pair of worn out black Levi's and you're 3/4 the way to your very own custom seat! I love the pocket on the back too, I've been saving an old leather jacket for use as seat upholstery on something and I think I'll have to steal the pocket idea.|
Note the rear of the frame in the seat pic above: It appears that he's capped the end of the frame where it was cut off. Nice touch...It's got a one-off oil tank, that's nice and simple and it looks like he's made his own air filter. One thing I fee like I gotta point out also in the builder's favor on this one: While normally Ace bars without rear sets nets you a torture rack with wheels. one that you'll be happy to step off of after 20 miles or so, except....
Also note the ol'tank switcheroo; it's much shorter than the OE tank and the seat has been moved forward as well, hence a more or less useable seating position and in conjunction with the lowering lends it a stretched look without apparently adding any wheelbase. Neat.
See what else you can find:
|305 tank? I don't know what model this came from, might not be a Honda for that matter but what fun!|
|Yes, even your aged Honda can throw gravel....but is it this cool looking?|
|Lots to dig here you nutjobs, dig in!|
|Looks like it even gets ridden now and again and though I think the pilot here may be of a more.......compact nature than some, the position looks pretty workable.|
I stole these pics from a neat blog called: Aztoon WheelsYou should check it out, there's a little more about the bike and lots of other interesting things to see!
