Thought you might like to share a couple of pics of my latest project, the ‘Amazing Ace’ 125.  Have owned it just over 6 months and have performed many mods in that time whilst sticking to a very realistic budget of around $600 all up.  The bike was bought ‘in a box’ from the distributor in Western Australia for $1820 landed in Hobart, Tasmania.  Fours hours or so to put it together with the help of a friend.  Here’s a list of what’s been done:
 
  • Engine hot up kit (jets, CDI etc.) from OO Racing UK
  • Sports muffler and exhaust ‘bandage’ and removal of cat converter
  • Headlight shield from Vespa
  • Halogen headlight bulb
  • NGK spark plug
  • Gas rear shock absorbers from OO Racing UK
  • Aftermarket hand grips
  • Bar end mirrors
  • Tacho (and thermometer)!
  • Removal of reflectors and headlight bracketing etc.
  • Leather strap for tank to replace rubber
  • Aftermarket foot pegs
  • Aftermarket clear lens indicators
  • Aftermarket horn
  • Aftermarket tail light
  • Removal of side stand lug so stand now folds up neatly
  • Removal of side stand ignition by-pass switch
  • Modified/ trimmed fuel valve (more k’s before going to reserve)
  • Custom-made stickers
  • Chrome lettering
  • ‘Nitrous’ bottle (all for show – no go)!
  • Lots of chrome vinyl, chrome trim and carbon fibre vinyl!

  1. I like to see a simple bike done on a budget. A bike that is ridden daily and is made to use rather than to show off is much cooler than a complex custom. If it’s a bit different, that’s just gravy.

    1. The badges are actually ‘NN 350 S’ if you look closely. ‘NN’ stands for “nowhere near’… I’m at least honest at the point!

  3. Awesome! Superb! I want! It may not be near a 350 as you say, but in the looks department, it’s giving it a good “run” for the money (and perhaps more mpg’s as well.) Beautiful.
