This Honda Ascot has been taken down to the frame for a complete make over. Please check out its feature on PIPEBURN. The frame was modified with a caferacer style rear hoop. It supports the handmade aluminum dirt tracker/street tracker style tail section. The seat is a one of a kind hand. It has been hand formed and covered in a durable textured vinyl. The gas tank is from a Suzuki TS250. The under side of the tank has been modified to fit the Honda frame. Stainless hand made exhaust with a beautiful stainless muffler create a very aggressive exhaust note! The engine has been given a new clutch and springs along with a few gaskets and seals. I did adjust the balancer chain while the side covers were removed. Fresh paint and stainless bolts dress up the engine nicely. The front number plate is all handmade from aluminum and the headlights are LED style with halos. The elegant gold wheels are stock and the tires are from Shinko. The paint has all been laid down buy Homeward Bound Motorcycles and is outstanding. All of this gives this Ascot the look of Hondas racing heritage. Keeping the racing look alive requires this bike to be a BARE BONES style. This means that is does not have a speedometer or gauges. It does not have turn siganls or a horn. It DOES have a brake/tail light and high/low beam headlight.
