Honda CG125 Tracker Build


When this Honda CG125 came to us it was purchased as a near functional Cafe Racer, however there was more to be done than initially met the eye. 

The owner of this Honda asked us to convert the rear suspension to a single shock absorber and build a stunning tracker inspired pie cut exhaust system. 

Our Assessment

The first thing we did is pull the bike apart to assess it when we realised that it had already had a poorly converted rear end, a seat made with what appeared to be sagging fibre glass and a wiring loom that was dangerous to say the least. 

The Exhaust

We pie cut and fabricated a stunning little exhaust and silencer of which gives a loverly burble to this single cylinder bike.

We also had to make an inlet manifold as the exhaust came too close to the carb.

The Single Shock Conversion

We started our conversion by bracing and strengthening the swingarm to ensure the shock had a solid base and nothing would collapse. We CNC machined the top and bottom mounts and used a shock absorber from a Yamaha YZF-R125 with an upgraded stiffer spring as the one from the Yamaha was too soft.

The Repairs

We made all the relevant repairs required to the frame as we did not feel confident that the last fabrication job would hold up to being ridden without major malfunction.

We created a new wiring loom and had the a fresh powder coat on the frame.

We made a new seat base and had is upholstered by a local upholsterer.
