The scrambler style is our favorite of the retro classic line up. It’s strikingly good-looking, ideal everyday ride, for around town or even some light off road work. And that’s how this custom started, when we were approached by a client who wanted to customize his 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250. The owner of this bike had been riding the motorcycle around the rural outskirts of Jakarta for the last one year, but he wanted something more than the standard offering. The idea was to build something simple and with a strong look at the same time, after some research and some clever modifications, We think we’ve nailed it. And now from our latest builds with a honor we are introducing THE RAKA that we built from 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250.
We knows that The Ninja 250 have a good engine and can make peoples feel easy to ride. But for this built we only need to released an original body and the legs sectors. Crafted a piece of 1.2 mm-thick galvanized plate sheet that integrated with the frame to perfection, and that looks 100% factory. Both fenders have been custom crafted manually for perfect visual integration. The rear one is short and perky, protruding from under the slender tail section. With no plastic body parts, this bike looks more aggressive and compact, showing us that, underneath the boxy bodywork, it is a beautiful bike. The front fork was changed Suzuki GSXR-600 Upside Down together with Fatbar handlebar and beautiful 5 inch headlight to make it simply looks. For wheel sectors absolutely we choose TK Japan spoke wheels 18X3.00 inch and 18X3.50 inch with Dunlop K180 120/80-18 and 130/80-18 for front and back. Look at the paint on the body! beautiful painted by Komet Studio with a green mate color based and he made a design like an army color.
Inspirational stuff, yup? How’s that famous poem go? “To watch the things you gave your life to, broken, and stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools. And lose, and start again at your beginnings, and never breathe a word about your loss.” But to put mere words to a feat of this magnitude would be damning it with faint praise.
