half fairing cafe racer

Released! The 2016 Triumph Motorcycle Classic Series T120!

We are lucky to have our friend from Bonnefication sharing some live feed photos at the Triumph Launching in London today. Here are some series of design for the new 2016 Triumph Motorcycle T120. We love the racer series as it comes with half fairing, USD forks, new tank shape, seat cowl and many more. Looks like they have upgraded the cc to 1200cc and 900cc. The most obvious thing to see is the slim radiator tuck in front of the frame. More specs to be revealed later. For now, enjoy the photos shared by Bonnefication.

The much awaited event, DGR have finally ended last Sunday 27th Sept 2015. For Kuala Lumpur, nearly 600 riders joined the parade. Kuala Lumpur also manage to raised fund around $940  for the Prostate Cancer Research. Although the weather was quite bad as the haze worsen on that day, these dapper gentlefolks risked their life to come and participate in this fun and meaningful event. The organizer, Naked13CafeRacer, however shorten the ride period so that everyone can reach to the final point as soon as possible to avoid exposure to the bad haze.

The starting location for DGRKL this year was amazing. with the aircraft and hanger as backdrop, the TUDM Museum at Sg. Besi was the perfect location for such meaningful event. For some reason I think that the dapper gentlefolk and aircraft blend in together. Police escort for this year was also amazing. 11 outriders calmly escorted the parade. We salute them. The only check point which was The Garage KL also was a blast. The nice design and architecture of the structure really makes the scenery more lively. Riders we served with good food and drinks. Last stop was the Pavillion Bukit Bintang, 1 of the famous shopping centre in KL. I think everyone was thankful to have the final stop here as everyone needed that cooling atmosphere in the Pavillion. The event ended with a blast where The Most Distinguished Gentleman was selected by 1 of the sponsor; Saccor Brothers and the winner got himself a bespoke custom suit.

Pipeburn Featured the Honda CBX750 M1-21

We have been surprised today as one of our favorite custom bike sites, the Pipeburn featured our Honda CBX750 M1-21 build. We have been referring to this site for bike’s inspiration and today we are part of it. Such an honour and thank you Andrew & Scott from Pipeburn. To view it check out this link guys :



Honda CBX750 Caferacer #Projectgila M1-21 Completed

Honda CBX750 caferacer; the latest addition to our bike build this year.

The bike started its life as a traffic police patrol bike, its a very common sight to see here in Malaysia the traffic police using it everyday to control the traffic, escorting people, chasing bad guys and etc. I remember since i was a kid, this bike was already around and people called it “Kuda Putih (White Horse)”. Never have thought that we are going to custom this bike and turn it into something cool.

When we first got this bike, we were skeptical whether this bike have the potential to be a cafe racer bike. There are no reference can be found in the internet for this specific model. The frame of this bike is more towards an easy rider riding position. It doesn’t have that straight line at all. Tank was boxy and short, full of sirens and extra lights, wiring was a nightmare, front fairing was huge, front fork was too high, the bike is using shaft instead of chain and etc.

Not long after that, a friend came and interested to buy this bike and let us to custom it. We both understand that its gonna be hard, but we are prepared to take the challenge. After spending about a month full of discussion and developing design, we started building it. stripping down the bike was quite fun, we kinda hate those unnecessary stuff fixed to that bike which also helps to reduced the weight of the bike.

We’ve chosen the 1980 CB750c gas tank to replace the stock tank in order to get a longer proportion for the bike. It also solved the issue of limited space underneath the gas tank as the main frame of this bike is a box shape instead of normal tube shape. We also use an alloy Monza flip up cap for the tank gas cap just to get a classic look for it.
To remain the essence of having a fairing for this cbx750, we have change the huge fairing into a cool half fairing setup. A 6.5″ chrome headlight were fitted nicely and finished with yellow tinted and a big “X” to show how badass this bike is. The stance of the bike looks more aggressive with the new CNC clip-on handlebars finished with a pair of bar end mirror. The front fender, side cover, battery box and the tail section is fabricated with metal sheet by us where lots of hours spend to get the right shape and design.

The owner was very into classic cafe racer looks. So we decided to used the 450-18 Firestone M/C Tire Blackwall for the front tire and 16″ Shinko for the rear tire. The front fork have been lowered down to 2.5″ and the effect of lowering down and using this tire is stunning as it make the bike looks more stable and tough. A new pair of shorty reverse cone Megaphone muffler exhaust in chrome finish were also fitted to this bike and we’ve painted the pipes with high-temp matt black colour so that the megaphone muffler will be more noticeable. Well… even without that, the sound of the muffler itself roaring is orgasm, hard for people NOT to noticed it. We wanted to have a simple looks at the airbox & battery area so the stock airbox was removed and a new air filter setup have been installed. We’ve fabricated a new but much simpler battery box where all the other wiring can be hide inside. The huge stock meter gauge was also removed and have been replaced with a separate speedo and rpm meter gauge in chrome finish.

The paintjob was an artwork from our close friend, Bigcat Motorart. They have great skills and attention into details when it comes to the finishing of their works. A nice “KERKUS” logo was part of the design of the tank with colour combination of silver, black and brass. A code no of M1-21 can be seen on the tail section where the meaning of it remains secret only to the bike owner. (Maybe it is related to the recent MH17 incident, we do not know)

We delivered the bike to the owner, and glad he was happy with the outcome. Sure there will be some minor tweaking, but overall, it stands out and it is one of a kind. We hope that this build can be a sample for those who thinks that its impossible to custom this cbx750 bike and may it be a reference for the future generation. Adios.
