Default my custom bike build

To start i brought a 2005 Lifan Monkey for £200 with V5 all working fine.



Then an idea came to my head, maybe not the best idea but i thought hey ho lets build. so started the list.

Extra long swing arm (OOracing)
New big shocks (Mate)
Z155 engine from (Stomp)
10" wheels
New front end setup with extra travel 5cm (OOracing)
New head light (EBay)
Digital dash (Trail Tech)
New indicators (EBay)
New electric switches (OOracing)
BSA Tank (EBay)
Sheet metal for custom seat and side panels (Pulham Steel)





Tonight i started striping the bike to just a roller and fitted the rear end what was supplied by OOracing.
I wonted a big tank but something with style so I got hold off a BSA tank what cost me £12 posted to my door. The next step is making up my mind how long Iím going to have to stretch the frame. I need 3 inches for the engine to fit but with the tank Iím going to have to go 5 inches.




Then the roller is going to my mates Redline Engineering (Tim Jones on facebook). He is the only man i trust to do my frame work.

well the roller is back and picking up the engine this week so i can get the rest of the setup right before paint. Tim had to make the roller 5 and half inches longer to fit the tank on but a great job done. also we brased up the rear frame with a old set of cb250 superdream handle bars for strength and just to look good.

well got the engine last night and work has begun mounted engine then had to mod the carb manifold so it would fit under the tank and had the hand make the seat pan ready for the mounts to get welded on the covered.

well soime more work done, plated up the front of the tank so the battery and all the electrics can go in side. seat mounts all welded on and fitted and carb manifold sorted and back light setup all sorted lot more jobs to do be for brake down ready for paint.





The New wheels have turned up, also a new exhaust system so tyres fitted with duro tyres to give it that country mean look. what i hope you like



Now some pics of the bike as it is now just waiting for more parts to turn up oil cooler and bits to check before i brake down for paint.

thats daft as hell but very very cool.

i reckon you may need a MSVA tho cos that frame has been chopped about so much.

oh and that 222 is sweet mate!

cool fun lil build, some very nice quality welding in there

I use OOracing for parts for my custom toy build, great guys, I got a set of their wheels, with 220mm disc and currently fabbing up a bracket for a radial caliper on there

was wondering if yours would look better with road tread, ie racing look tyres

Ive got 130 70 10 rear and it looks the tits.

mind you ive got 33bhp engine going in mine so need some sticky rubber

Nice looking project. I was lucky enough to be down the isle of wight the other year the same time as the monkey bike owners club rally. and can safely say I have never had so much fun than I did with 40 grown men on monkey bikes!!!!

Great bunch of guys enjoying life on summit so small
