Honda CG ES 2008

#1 Post by RandomRider » Thu Oct 25, 2018 12:50 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm new here and happy to join what seems to be a lively and friendly community.
I currently have a Honda CG ES model 2008 which I have ridden for a few years now. I wanted initially to turn it into a Cafe racer style motorbike, but I realised that my model has the square frame which rises high at the back, rather than the tubular kind that seem to lend themselves to the cafe racer look.
I'm still pretty keen on the idea of making my bike more my own, changing a few things on it and improving the somewhat unappealing look that it currently has. Any advice or ideas as to what I could do to it? Any ideas would be welcome.

The blueprint for the frame of my bike can be found on google Images by searching 'Frame 125 CG 2008 CG125ES7'

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello and welcome, why not get an old style CG frame ( and V5 ) and just transplant bits of your bike into it ?

Have a look at the Mash or Bullit cafe racers.....that's more or less what they should look like.......and welcome to our "lively and friendly" community.......it will be fun (one way or the other...) :thumb:
Oh my God, what's happened? I don't know man...I just got here myself!
