Honda GL500 – Black beauty

Maybe in a shade of XV 920 splendor we’ve completed not that shout-out-loud bike. It’s Honda GL500 from 82′ and it looks like it’s becoming our specialty to build this glorious machines. It supposed to be black, and it is black. Mean. Beautiful. Something about the build: GSXR 750 front …

Ugly#05 Honda GL500 82′ – done.

Good times.

This bike was a true challenge to build. I struggle to find the right balance and lines on the rear end of GL500 frame. It’s much easier with CX500 where You got single tube between carburettors. Here on Silverwing You got this fat straight lines of frame and Pro Link swing arm.

I hope You like the bike and photos. I’ve started to work with my friend photographer and the effects to me was stunning.

…ahead more challenges Suzuki GSX 1200 Inazuma and <hold it  >…..BMW K1200RS !

Ugly#04 Yamaha XV750 82′

This project was my 3rd build and from a start it was supposed to be an impossible task to manage. I set myself a goal that I need to build something that will stand out from the other Viragos at the Cafe Racer market. Seeing the lines of a tank I figured out a way to extend them to the rear subframe. I don’t like the way people join a seat with the original tank of Virago and designed my own solution. Another challenge was the front end.

The list of custom made parts for this beauty is quite impressive according to 3 month building process: Steel rear frame, exhaust system with silencers, Custom fitted ZX7RR complete front fork, wheel, brakes, clip on’s, Custom shaped tailored and stuffed seat with all the fitting needed, Same leather as the seat used to wrap grips, Custom fitted original Virago tank, front light + fuse box mount, number plate mount, Yamaha R1 rear sets adapters, K&N filter mount, rear light bar.

Ugly#03 Honda CB 750 K 80′

Beautiful, strong bike with a low stance. Hugely influenced by motorsport and out-of-this-planet roar. Power 77KM from 750 cc engine, 4 cyl. DOHC

A main philosophy was to make a low, fast and eye catching bike, but this model gave us so much more. I managed to catch the motorsport spirit with a relatively comfortable position and glorious inline four sound.

What I did: aluminum top clamp with speedo mount, SV650 clip-on fitting rings, velo stacks, K&N filters mount, custom cut frame with new leather seat, all four blinkers mount , rear light mount, rear and front fenders, reg. plate mount, battery housing, frame wheels powder coated rust protected and varnished, engine painted with Motip heat resistant paint, tank paint job.

Ugly#01 Suzuki GS 400 77′

Here. Where all started. Suzuki GS400 was bought somewhere near city of Jelenia Góra in January 2014r. It was a beautiful light-weight machine.

Principal was to catch the lightness of the frame and tank. To not overweight the bike with complex and big things like after market seat cowls so I’ve made one. I wanted to paint the bike with juicy colours. Inspired by Gulf Racing palette Aston Martin green plus Gulf Orange fitted perfectly the racing spirit of the bike.

Project features: seat (leather) sow by a friends, fibreglass tail – part that took tons and tons of work including battery fitting, rear sets, speedometer basket designed and welded by us plus led dashboard lights and gear position screen, V-shaped stainless steel – 2in1 polished exhaust – made by a pro who welded many chopper, quad and motorcycle elements, handlebar custom made, grips – strips made from nice Italian leather, registration plate mount – designed and welded by us.
