My pride and joy....revisited

Post by pandp on Sat 4 May 2013 - 5:58

Well as i no longer have my lengthy topic showing two years of mods, blood, sweat and tears....i thought i would cut a long story short.

Hyosung GT125....2005....purchased in early 2011



Over the first few months i did a few mods such as SS exhaust, tail tidy, barends, mirrors etc



That's when i got the bug to mod....as well as changing my engine to another 125 due to suspected problems, i decided to change the colour



I also went through variations of different light units and decals



I toyed around with fairings



and then finally in November 2012 i decided to go and do a complete strip and rebuild....every single nut, bolt, screw.....everything was removed and cleaned or replaced....the strip involved more spraying....fresher, cleaner decals, a 250 engine, uprated to 250 forks with twin brake discs, rear Brembo master, new 250 clocks etc etc....the list is endless and the finished article was well worth all those hours of frustration...






And that's my story Very Happy

its a masterpiece Paul, truly a work of art, it would be such a shame if you have to sell it, but needs must.

Looking forward to seeing future projects

Thanks mate, so far so good with managing to keep her. I do intend on doing other projects but i don't think i'll do so a major strip to another bike. Now i have my trailer i'm looking to buy and sell after doing subtle mods etc.
