Great site!!! I have visited MANY times while I collected reference material. Attached you’ll find pics of my ’69 Bonneville build that took place mostly in my dining room between early October and January. It’s not to the sanitary stage yet. Still doing shake-down runs but, I can’t hardly stop once I’m out on a ride without having a crowd gather around the thing. Then of course I spend the next hour answering questions and telling folks how it came together. Anyway, thought I’d share some pics with you. It could be classified as a “street tracker” I suppose but, as you will see mine doesn’t have any fiberglass on it. Mostly I figure it’s a hot rod and since I had to bob it and chop it a bit to get it to where it’s at, it may be time to begin a new classification or category of bike. I call be bike The Bopper.
Wow that’s nice. I mean Damm. And you’re right. I’ve tagged as a Chopper/Bobber/Streettracker. Hard to pin it down.
Thanks Much Larry.
I know it’s been all over the web already but I still can’t resist. What a beauty. Fot LOTS more just google LSL W800
Wow! That is a stunner! Thanks very much to reader Robert Carradine.
Another Great Build from Hajarboxx Motorcycles. See more of their stuff HERE! And HERE!

How are you doing? Just want to share our latest work. The donor bike is an Suzuki EN125, and the owner wanted a two-seater that could go through the rain (he meant some useful fenders :D), and he also wanted to change the frame and the seating position, so we change the footpegs position and gave him a taller bar. The tank is fron an old Suzuki GP125, and the battry box is a modified Suzuki A100 carb filter box. The fenders are customized honda CB100’s. No major works withthe suspensions. As always (been too busy to set up new blog/site! :) ) you can check the building process here ( http://www.facebook.com/gifny.richata#!/album.php?aid=27446&id=115078248506795 )
Have a nice day!!
An here’s the before pic I grabbed for his link. Just amazing!
I had a shot of this bike a while back and a lot of folks e-mailed me to ask about it. Well I’ve finally stumbeled across the original sources. The bike was built by Joker machine. To learn more about them and this bike check them out HERE
Moving this to the top for a bit since so many folks had questions about it.
Update 3: Found the build thread! An alert reader over on ADV rider found the build thread on this bike. A lot of folks have been asking for more info so here you go!
From the comments (Thanks SakeRacer). More info Here: http://www.pipeburn.com/home/2010/9/9/1973-yamaha-rd250-street-tracker.html
Sorry to Pipeburn. I didn’t realize it originated on their site. TONS of great stuff over there so check them out often.
My observant commentors make some good points about the classification of this bike. Tracker of Bobber? I see a lot of elements of both styles here and to be honest I’m not crazy about pigeon holing bikes all that much so lets call it a tracker-bobber. Whatever you call it it’s still freaking cool!
That’s got backroad fun written all over it.
Paul Robinson sends in a pic of his interesting build.
Hmmm… There’s a lo of potential here. I never thought of these bikes as tracker material. There’s a million of them out there too at affordable prices. Just saying..
This may be the nicest CM400T on the planet. Damm that is cool.
I’ve said it here many many times. You do NOT need big money or big engines to build fantastic bikes. And here we have another excellent example of that. This beauty was built by Mario Trigo Salorino wo writes in:
Hello, my name is Mario and I write from Spain. I’m a fan of your blog for a long time. Always show the style of bikes that I like. It is a daily appointment required.
I want to show a personal project I recently completed. It is a Honda CM400T, base uncommon, has been done by me and some friends. I do not define his style, bobber, track, brat … is a modest project but I’m very happy with the result. Major changes are, handlebars, handlebar switch, repositioning of the electrical components and battery box, exhaust, rear set, clocks, modified original seat and paint job. Appear on your blog would be a reward for my work. I hope you like.
A greeting and continued with this great blog. Muchas gracias.
PS. Sorry for my English.
Your English is fine Mario It’s an excellent build. I am labeling at a Street Tracker but you’re right it has elements of other styles in it as well. ! Thank you very much for sending in these great picture!
I keep looking at this bike and wondering why I kinda sorta like it. It’s a very strange mix that that has me scratching my head.
