The Project Bike

I spent two nights on the Internet trying to find a suitable second hand project bike. Not much success, either too expensive, or not really suitable. I wanted to have a bike that is registered, so the color had to be red. In the Philippines the color of a bike is included in the papers, changing the color invalidates the registration. Stupid rule, since other things that are important for the safety of the rider are not in the papers. Anyway, in order to maintain a registration we needed a red bike.

Then there is this newly opened Rusi shop on the Los Banos National Highway, very close to IRRI Tabon gate. And they had a small red bike, sort of ideal for beginners, and with a front mudgard that looks like Batman's cap, if you have some immagination. And the brand new bike cost less than US$ 1,000. So the decision was made very quickly and we bought the last unit on stock before the 2016 home leave.

The rest of the bike looks quite ugly, lots of plastic, put together by one of the greatest motocycle designers in history. So this will need some major re-work.
