Miro's Honda tank getting some stripes, pinstripes!

Honda CG 125 tank painting with pinstripeHonda CG 125 tank painting with pinstripe

The painting is already awesome, but the outline is the cherry on top.

The easy way would be to mask the part for the line and then to use the airbrush or spray gun.
More tricky is to do the job with the pinstripe brush, of course free hand.
I think it turned out great...


Next are the Honda embleme.

A little progress on this super nice CG. I found some fat tyres (3" both). They look awesome. But now i have to change the front fender. The genuine one is too small.


Fortunately i found the LED turnlights i was looking for. There are not many possibilities for a 6V system.

Beside refining the parts from Marco's CG 125, converting Miro's CG 125, i got another CB 250G on the lift.
At the end it will be a real Cafe Racer... or a customer walks in and is looking for such a ride and has another idea.

In the last years i bought always bikes to ride by myself, but each one was bought by a customer during working on it!!

For sure this will be an awesome runnner... stay tuned
