What is the coolest 250cc single cylinder bike ever? (I never thought I’d write that sentence!)
Some say the SR250, some the Suzuki GN250 (have they ridden one?), no doubt some old guys will point to their once portable british oil leak and say “they don’t make them like used too”. There is a reason for that bozo…
Anyway, back to 250cc single cylinder coolness.
This bike started out as a Kawasaki TR250 and has been customised by Jet Motorcycles of Japan who are producing some seriously great bikes (and a couple of dodgies)

Saw this on Silodrome this week and thought I’d reblog it as we are basically finished the CB550 we’ve been working on for ages. Always interesting to see what others do with the same bike.
^The number plate position, whats the point?

Yesterday you had the pleasure of seeing a stunning CB500 cafe racer built by Carlos from Brazil. Today you are seeing his Brat. When I first saw the pictures I assumed Carlos had a couple of bikes. Only when I started posting them did I realise they are the same bike!
What a brilliant idea! One that I’m sure we’re going to see a lot more of in the future.
“You got the idea now. One bike… two differente “personalities”
Everybody thinks I have two bikes. Same color because of the papers.
On the book, Dr. Jekyll is the good guy (when I ride with my girlfriend - two seats), Mr Hyde… is the bad one.
It started as one seat bike, until my girlfriend started to complain that she was left out from all the fun.
To change the tank and seat, all I need is to loose five bolts that are under the seat (four for the seats and one for the tank).”

You’ve seen this bike 100’s of times right…well not this actual bike because this is the first time its been given a wide audience…but you’ve seen many just like it right?
Throw a Benelli tank on a CB500 and pretty it up and BAM! you’ve got a darn good cafe racer.
Except Carlos has done something different, something very simple but very different. It’s not the amazing quality of the build or the beautiful leather work or even absolutely nailing the paintwork.
It is something that I can’t believe hasn’t been done before and I believe is going to start a trend. However, you are going to have to wait until tomorrows post to find out what it is. In the meantime enjoy “Mr Hyde” all the way from Brasil.

It’s no secret I have a penchant for the bikes that come out of Japan. Here is another example of a W650 customised in the Japanese bobber style.

A custom Suzuki Thunder 250 from Studio Motor. They’ve reduced a lot of weight and added some modern wheels etc off a Cagiva Planet. Certainly looks the part.
