Well it arrived this morning. I have been thinking for a long time about doing a custom bike. In high school I always wanted to do a custom car but never had the funds to do it properly. Now I could not care less about cars, preferring motorcycles. So I am about to embark on a journey of doing a complete custom bike. I thought I would start small and with a number of old CB 125 junkers around, and cheap parts in plentiful abundance, I thought I would start on something of a cafe racer town bike, just for fun. I found a shop that could get a CB 125 for me and ordered one last week. Unfortunately it arrived and was not a CB 125 like I had ordered but a Wing 100. Pretty much the same bike, just not quite as nice. From what I can tell, it shares pretty much the same frame so I should be able to do most of the work and if I like the result, swap out engines later without too much hassle. I hope to post some photos and progress reports as I go. But what I am really looking for is advice from anyone who has ever undertaken a project like this. What I hope to end up with is a small displacement cafe racer for under 30,000 baht (hopefully a lot under). I have some ideas in my head already about what I want the bike to look like when I am done. This one is pretty close to what I had in mind. Though I would like a custom tank and a little more sporty colour scheme. Total spent to date: 5000 Base bike, gl 100 with licence bit of a junker but thats the point really.
