Trying to build a Mustache ride clon
So long story short, ive been trying to build a mustache ride con for so long but never had the luck to get my hands on a honda rebel, either they where to expensive or gone real quick. So las week i finally got my hands on one 1985 250, very bad shape, but price was fair, 300 dlls plus a full working arcade. Now i inmediatly started to take off the back fender, and the filter box. The bike did not had any back light or turn signal lights. Front ligh works.ItWas very badly painted.And at first i didnt notice but it look like it was crashed and the forks are a bit bended, so ima have to take those to a shop so the can fix them, or maybe i would just buy some junk yard ones. The frame was fixed and it looks good. Engine had very old spark plugs and it couldnt run well but after getting some new ones engine runs like new. The carb its in very very poor condition, it had tons of mud inside but after 3 or more flushes , fuel comes out clean now, so i added a carb cleaner to a full tank and it appears to works just fine for now. Im using it for my daily work transportation, and so far the wngine works good. I do have a problem with the shifter level, as it does not have the original, someone soldered a piece of metal, but it does not work very nice. I have buy a compatible shifter thing, so im going to instal that as soon as i can. I was having trouble with the fron light so today i messed with the wires a little bit and got it working now, on the weeken im gonna work with the wires. I dont like the stock bars so im going to build some bitweel clon bars and install them to make it look nice. Now on those bars, i do know a shop owner who builds race cars from scratch, and because we friends, he will build thos for me for cheap, im talking about 100% profesional bending and soldering, so i wont have to worry on the bars.
Now Im a poor man on a poor country, so most of my fixes would not be profesional, and maybe would not look as clean as others, but im a try to do my best to make a clone of that mustache ride i had wanted for so long. Anyway heres a pic of my ride next to the mustache ride. And please pardon my awfull grammar ,english is my second lenguage.
