Custom bike builders in the UK (and SE)
 
HI
I am looking for someone to customise my bike in a brat style. There are lots of bobbers and harley customisers but i finding it difficult to find anyone out there that does a more brat/ cafe style

I am based in london, so would prefer close to London but not essential ( quality and recommendation more important)

Bike is a cx500 that is dying to be made cool.....

Thanks

Why not choose a better bike to begin with, the maggot was always a naff bike, with it's only use to be destroyed by dispatch riders because they were cheap.

Isnt that a tad harsh...
Beauty and the eye of the beholder and all that stuff... everyone is entitled to their own taste and budget of course...
A bike is a bike and he cares enough to want to do something with it..:thumbsu:

Nice build,shame about the engine. A Guzzi motor would make all the difference.

I would rather be told a honest oppinion than be encouraged to invest in a bike that will prove to be unreliable, at best. As a start point he needs a better machine, honest advice not verbally thrashing.

Why not choose a decent bike to begin with, the maggot was always a naff bike, with it's only use to be destroyed by dispatch riders because they were cheap.[/QUOTE]

Thats a tad harshly put... the sentiment may be sound, but the way it was put was still harsh to a newbie...;)

Sort of cruiser with a double thin seat and no side panels, looks a bit like the child of a bobber and a cafe racer..Like most Japanese products it is a copy of something else..

We get a few like that, some just post once to sell something, others want help or advice but have posted on several sites and can't be bothered to come back when they find the answer, and others have just forgotten the password.

Then we get the spammers and the trolls.

Probably there are others that get pissed off because there might be a bit of piss taking or fucking swearing on this site..

John.
