Do you think you have what it takes to make it as a Bike of the Month? If so, please contact me with some pictures and info so we can show off your NSR to the entire world to see.
|The August 2011 Bike of the Month belongs to Mr. Mui from Gifu Prefecture in Japan.|
|Mr Mui's bike was featured in the past as a previous Bike of the Month and after a while he decided to rebuild his NSR with a whole new look.|
|First step, pull bike apart again and order parts including the new Tyga RSW fairing. The seat comes from a RS125 and was made to fit with a custom made seat subframe in aluminum.|
|Mr. Mui and his wife both enjoy working on the bikes together and riding them too. They came up with this cool Japanese style "OIRAN" design which is like a soft textile material used in making KIMONO silk garments. Together the Mui Family painted the fairings and added the cloth like material for an incredible and one-off traditonal Japanese look that I have to admit is very cool. No NSR decals were used on this bike. He decided to go with a complete RSW racer look including logos and kept the bike street legal with small and hidden lights carefully placed for a street legal ride.|
|Other cool upgrades since the last build are the dummy NOS style coolant reservoir tank bottles (these may go on sale, email if interested) and the modified MC28 digital speedometer to work on this MC21 bike including water temp and voltmeters. Click here to see a working video of the meter in action from YouTube.|
|The Mui Family has even more plans for this bike in the future and plan to keep things in the traditional Japanese ways. Stay tuned for more about this amazing bike.|
|Usually every month I try to feature a different NSR in this section. Recently it has become a bimonthly feature due to time restrictions and a lack of material. Above you can check out the featured Bike of the Month and past Bikes of the Month. Do you think your NSR belongs here ? Then send a few pictures and some information and maybe we can feature it here. Mail me here. Cheers !!|
