Been awhile since I’ve posted last, so here is a quick update on what’s going down at 121 Customs/Tonup Boulder.
121 Bobber project: Everything is tack welded to the frame, mocked up and pulled back off. Should be sent to powder coat and paint in a month (when money is available). I did the full lower motor rebuild before this started, but need to finish the top end and put a better carb on it. So engine work will be done while other items are being done.
121 Vintage Hypermoto: This little project is still in my head, but the TRW250 Triumph single motor is complete and ready to sit in it’s new frame. Just looking for a donor Honda dirt bike to take the front suspension and rear swing arm off of.
..and the new addition JATM CB550 Four K project: The wife found a very clean ’75 CB550 Four that she wants “cafe’ed”. This will be her first build and is starting out very well. Quick and easy tear down (look for the parts on eBay username ‘Chuk121’). This will be the first Japanese cafe out of the shop, so i’m learning a lot.
I’m hoping to have all three of these bikes on the road first thing this spring (May ’17), fingers crossed
