The Ghost Rider: Custom Kawasaki Fury 125 Bobber by Tron Bikes Works

The Ghost Rider: Custom Kawasaki Fury 125 Bobber by Tron Bikes Works
By: Arnel B. Santos-Ynigo

For this month we are featuring a Custom built Bobber built by Tron Bikes Works of Lapu-Lapu City Mactan but what makes it unique is the base bike that it was built on. Bobber builds are usually built around cruiser bikes such as Harley-Davidson, Indian, Excelsior and Henderson. The riding position usually places the feet forward and the hands up, with the spine erect or leaning back slightly. Typical cruiser engines emphasize easy rideability and shifting, with plenty of low-end torque but not necessarily large amounts of horsepower, traditionally V-twins but inline engines have become more common. But for this build the team behind the bike used an underbone as a platform
particularly the Kawasaki Fury 125.

A bobber, originally called a 'bob-job' from the 1930s through 1990s, is a style of custom motorcycle. The typical construction includes stripping excess bodywork from a motorcycle; removing the front fender, and shortening the rear fender, which is "bobbed" (as in bob-tail), and all superfluous parts removed to reduce weight.

Going into the bike the Tron Bikes team did a lot of custom body work the platform which is the Kawasaki Fury 125 was not your regular platform when building bobbers so you could only imagine the man-hours and complexity involved in building the bike. They altered the angle of the front suspension, they made custom shifters, and rear brake controls to achieve the laid back
position. One might argue that it looks like a chopper but the team did not go to extremes in altering the rake angles which are common in chopper bikes that have extended front forks that
give it a stretched out look. The whole rear portion of the bike was custom built. They also did a custom gas tank and extensive custom body work on the front end of the bike which houses all the controls only the middle portion of the chassis was kept original. They used chains from a nearby shipyard to create the custom paddle shifters and brake paddles up front and the
passenger foot pegs at the rear. They also made a custom seat for the bike. The chains were also used to make the customs accents to give it the "Ghost Rider" look and finally the whole bike was custom airbrushed with the Ghost Rider theme.
