PUNCH DRUNK. Pap N Mam’s Boxer Kawasaki W400 Scrambler

Posted on November 7, 2018 by Andrew in Scrambler, Tracker. No Comments

After almost ten years of blogging about custom bikes, we’re pretty confident we could count the instances of builders who have made their own engines on one hand; even a hand that’d taken a trip through a rear chain and sprocket.

I SCRAM LEGEND. FCR Original’s McQueen Triumph Scrambler Homage
