Small details. That’s what separates a good build from a great build. Of course there’s a whole heap of work you’ll first need to do to reach the “good” stage, but once you’re there a few personal touches or clever modifications can really make your bike stand out from the crowd. Takes for instance for our new latest build, used a 2014 Kawasaki Versys 650. The owner wanted to get the feel of riding a custom bike that converted to a scrambler style. And this is for the second time after we built this bike last year and we called THE TEMPER. Need to made this Versys more dazzling, we tried to re-design started from gas tank and old sub frame. And this the result!
The layout for the bike was adjusted accordingly, Building on previous experience, we only need to re-changed the model from old sub frame. The front end and swing arm plus back suspension still using an original including the rims. Only changed tires using Shinko E705 120/80-17 for front and 150/70-17 for the back. The old bodyworks was removed and swapped with a handmade unit crafted from 1.2 mm galvanized plate, along fitted in original Versys main frame. The custom headlight and taillight on “The Temper 2” are joined by Pro Tapper handlebar, custom exhaust system and topped off with a classic grey base by Komet Studio, highlighted with silver accents, using Sikkens product. Finally, with the build finished, there is only one thing left to do, and it is best summed up by our self. Nothing the best, it’s just a simply stunning from us, but really, It’s satisfied!!
