The summer was meant to be fruitful for the CC boys, what with the build of their first bike, they hoped to finish it and sell it to raise money for tools, parts and another bike. Yet unforeseen problems arose in the CC headquarters. Because of these unfortunate series of events, Luke decided to present Mackenzie with the opportunity to complete his project by putting aside the GT and getting him some time with his bike in Luke's workplace workshop.
This projects consists of Mackenzie's Suzuki Van Van 125cc on which he passed his restricted licence on. Yet after becoming accustom to the teeny 12bhp, Mackenzie longed for more power and his first custom bike. While keeping costs low and sourcing and purchasing parts over the period of a year, he built his arsenal of parts up until the time would come.
Mackenzie's modifications hope to include the following:
- Top end rebuilt, 90' GN 250 engine with 300cc big bore kit
- Custom 92' GN 250 tank
- New custom Brat style (which would
mean a rear frame hack)
- Air cone filters
- Clean handlebars and toggle
switches (handlebars would only have indicators and starter button)
- Headlight switch and horn button would be on top of the headlamp unit
(like and old BSA)
- All wiring to be simplified and hidden
- Idiot lights
- Possible ignition move to under seat
- Possible fat front
Frame/handlebars/swing arm/forks/yokes/rims/hubs/spokes to be powder coated
- Custom high wrapped exhaust
- Bullet indicators
- Possible inverted levers
Progress will start tomorrow, and it will all be shown step by step!
