THE COMPANY : Dauphine-Lamarck speciality is 60s 70s and 80s Honda motorcycle ; aiming the accessibility for everyone i customizing small capacity Honda's in the suburbs of Paris... The Philosophy of DL is the passion for the history of objects , their past. What can we do with old thing. Honda manufacture have a lot of best selling two-wheeler under 126cc, beautiful history, that few people accept as it is, in spite of its influence in the modern society. The idea is to make these two worlds relate, to make discover this story those people who might not be sensible to it. We realize the majority of works on our own, far from industrialized productions. It's the risk to be obliged to restart everything if the work is not satisfactory. In fact, I think that the motorcycles we create correspond more to way of life than to some specific type. THE BIKE : For this bike i wanted a without fuss 125, to create a simple racer, grey, equilibrated, something timeless. My purpose was to create a motorbike with Honda NOS pieces only ! The base is a CBS125 from 1974. I add a 12 volts engine with a XL 350 piston; all feulled by a ATC 200 carburateror. Regarding the bike's striped, i choose a 9cm extended arm, the front fork reduced, making the bike elongaed and trimmed down, the wheels come from a CB 125 K5 with a massive front brake double cam. A tank, drag bar from an S90 and a CB200's headlight were added to give the steam machine a 60's look ! Read Less
