Scale I Build

  1. hi,every one!!😄 it's been a long time..... this is my 1/12 TAMIYA HONDA CB750.. this kit is quite old...but fits well!! I did some modification on this bike.. not perfect, but I am happy with the result hope you like it 😀 and here is the video build if you are interested😀
  2. I decided to make my own Cafe racer, and as you gents (and some ladies) know, they don't sell Cafe Racer model kits...just like the real ones, you just don't go buy one....someone builds it for you from an old motorcycle. Therefore I took an old Tamiya 1/12 Suzuki GSX750 Police Bike kit and made my own. I made the rear cow from a piece of plastic and putty and metal and the seat and grips I made out of real leather donated via the glove in the picture. I custom made the pipes by cutting the 4 into 2 pipe into pieces, melting them in shape to wrap around the frame and wrapped them in strips of surgical tape, then painted the tape. I used the forks of a GP Race bike and cut the speedo down from 4 dials to one. First one I ever done, therefore the gap in the rear cowing is off, but hey...its my first! I put the picture of what the model would've looked like on the box behind mine.. Enjoy
