Honda GL200 Café Racer

 Found this cool Honda GL200 café racer from Sometimes Nothing is a Real Cool Hand. Nice!
Cafe Racer Honda GL200 Dolores belongs to Indonesians Arya Pratama. He named his bike “Dolores”, because the Latin word translated as “sorrow” or “pain.” At the time of the completion of this project, Arya was a painful period, his father died.
Arya turned to a good friend of Rio workshop located in Jakarta, Indonesia. He asked Rio to build a classic cafe racer in the British style. The task was clear, Rio based his motorcycle Honda GL200 1994 (Honda Tiger) and got to work. The donor bike was in terrible condition: broken frame, multiple oil leaks, a lot of broken parts, and many were missing. Motorbike Arya paid $ 400, even for Indonesia is quite a lot for such trash.
Modernization and details of Cafe Racer Honda GL200 Dolores:
• A new sub-frame
• Redesigned fork
• 18-inch wheels
• Changed wheels
• Lamp, lights, turn signals and parts catalog
• Parts are handmade from steel: fuel tank, front fender, exhaust, side covers (made by hand) and hammer
• The engine is sandblasted, painted black
The result is above all praise; bike is ideal and very harmonious. Word Arya Pratama confirmation: “I am very pleased with the construction, finally my dream came true, my father would have loved it.”
