On a bike this pretty there will always be compromises, and in this one's case it's the turning radius. There will be plenty of three-point (or more) turns in this bike's future and doing this turning is a set of handlebars that deserves a closer look. Koji tells us, "I was trying to be truly unique on this bike and incorporate features you just don't see on other machines. I've never seen handlebars like this, so I decided to make them myself. It took a bit of adjusting, but the final position feels pretty good and it should be comfortable to ride". You can see each individual piece of the exhaust that Koji painstakingly aligned and welded together. It does give the exhaust a very dramatic effect.You can see each individual piece of the exhaust that Koji painstakingly aligned and welde Riding is one thing, stopping is another, and Koji might well have gone a little overboard in this department. As if an Alcon six-pot front caliper wasn't enough, he has teamed it up with a grippy one-off carbon brake disk. The suspension has been updated from the 1984 items, and the swingarm is yet another impressive Koji creation. For a neat touch, the chain passes through it and the pivot point on the frame is another billet piece Koji made. Koji's ride is one-of-a-kind, and has already caught a fair amount of attention at the few shows it's attended. It appears to be a constant work in process, with Koji shyly admitting that it still has a few things to be sorted before he carefully takes it out on the road. We guess for some people perfection is a destination they can never quite reach. « | 1 | 2 | 3 | » | View Full Article By Jeremy Blackman Enjoyed this Post?
