Up until now we had never heard of a Honda JX110 – probably because it’s most commonly found in Thailand. In Thailand there are various models of 110-125cc Honda Motorcycles including cb, jx, cg and gl models. Almost every models use the same frames and engines, but have minor differences like fuel tanks, seats and shock absorbers. This model is a 1981 Honda jx110 and has been turned into a Norton Manx styled café racer by Thai resident Torsak. “My dream motorcycle is a racing-style one with long fuel tank and single seat like former British café racer” Torsak said. “I spent 6 months modifying the whole bodywork except the frame and engine. The work includes a set of Yamaha vr150 shock absorber system and disc brake, change front-wheel and back-wheel size from 17 inch to 18 inch by using vintage D.I.D.’s wheel aluminium rims, the front tire is a Dunlop F11 and the rear tire is a classic Dunlop TT100GP. Fuel tank is from Custom House Stinky in Japan, rearsets from Yoshimura and the headlamp is from Vintage Bike UK .The seat, exhaust and front-back mudguards were all hand made.”
Torsak has done a marvelous job creating this stunning little cafe racer. Also have a feeling Torsak may have read our ‘Shoot your Bike‘ article – impressive shots as well.
