Honda VLX 400 Chopper/Bobber. A Totally Awesome Budget Build.

You guys know how much i love a well executed budget custom. Simon Tay of Singapore sends in another fine example of why imagination and creativity is always necessary no matter how much money you have… or in this case DON’T have. Congratulations on such a nice bike!

Hi there,
Here’s a Honda Steed VLX 400 I had customized. Did it on a super low budget of S$450. I used an old front fender and widen it to make the rear fender. Found an old leather chair by the dumpster and turned it into a leather seat. Paint was rattled can sprayed but I had the paint shop to do a 2K clear over it for durability. Custom made bars with internal wiring and flushed fork caps. I hope you like it! I’m working on another bike now, hope it’ll turn out better than this!

Thanks again Simon!  I Love it!






    1. Thanks mate! I had a thread at clubchopper but it was sometime back, I’ll try to find the link. Or hit me up at and I can show you more, and a little sneak preview of what I’m working on now!

  1. Watch the mice, cats, and dragons come alive on your
    screens while sponge bob figures out how to fit into triangular pants instead of a square one.

    But if that game doesn’t include a mini-game where I get to dance like the Predator does
    in the video above, I don’t want it. Then put that piece
    of paper somewhere where you will see it every morning ‘ stick it to your mirror, or the back
    of the bathroom door, or put it in your cutlery drawer so you see
    it when you get a spoon out for your cereal.

  2. Hi mate.
    Bike looks great.
    Quick question, did u chop the rear fender original housing off (really ugly bulky one) and reattach the new fender ?
    Where did u attach new fender to near seat ?
