Yamaha SR125 ScramblerToday I got an e-mail of Grzegorz Korczak from Unikat (thanks buddy!) with a bunch of pictures of his recent finished project: a custom Yamaha SR125 Scrambler named “Clockwork Orange”. We know Grzegorz from an earlier feature here on the blog, a cool Honda CB550 SL Custom.

Just like the Honda, this Yamaha is full of high quality, hand fabricated parts with an amazing eye for detail.

Words from Grzegorz:

As you can see in the pictures we built this motorcycles from scratch. Design (based on Suzuki gn tank) and technical condition/solutions are far from the original (take a look at the original to compare) like LED lights etc. Yamaha XS 125 originally has excellent 12 HP engine, we decided to use K&N air filter and handcrafted stainless exhaust witch offers nice look and incredible bass sound (euphonious…not too loud) – to increase horsepower and acceleration. We didn’t forget about perfect handling balance and geometry to enhance sporty style, so we rebuild suspension on monoshock swing arm and have lover the weight central point.

We removed old paint from frame by hand wire brush and after that we used transparent powder coating. Brand new drivetrain, oil, filters and the lightest motorcyle battery in the world from Shorai– to make ride very fast. We also used enduro style aluminum handlebar with Bitwell grips to make better feeling and comfortable. Because safety is very important for UNIKAT, we choose Hindenau tires and huge drilled brake disc.
