A beautiful 1950s Sci-fi styled custom motorcycle

Custom motorbikes made by Japanese builders are not excessive. Well, Custom Works Zon has a cool reputation in its home country, Japan. Now they brought something different more like a beautiful 1950s Sci-fi styled custom motorcycle called Zonkern.

According to our eyes as outsiders, this is an extreme modification, but to Zon's standards, this is quite practical. In Japan, builder names such as Yuichi Yoshizawa and Yoshikazu Ueda are known for their excessive motor modifications. But, this time, Yuichi and Yoshikazu had slightly refined their work.

"We want to make motorcycles that meet basic performance, such as spinning and stopping, while still being fun to ride," Yuichi said.

Initially, Zon more considered using a Japanese motorbike as the raw material for its work but later decided to use the 1998 Buell S1 Lightning motor. "If you talk about sporty machines with good responses, there's only Buell," he said.

Yuichi and Yoshikazu had built the motorbike's trellis frame from scratch. They were inspired when modifying one of the Ducati Monster of theirs in 2015. They also took the opportunity to work as freely as possible with bodywork.

"I want a chassis that is small and lightweight, and with good agility. The goal is achieved, even though it is not a chassis that should be seen on a motor modification. I only pursue its function," said Yuichi.

Making a completely new frame is quite difficult, but Zon has gone further by installing a veiled spring-type front end. Springer settings are also their own designs. Zon also makes a one-sided swingarm, which is configured for mono-shock suspension settings.

Its wheels are mounted 18 inches by using the Performance Machine's alloy wheels. Then Zon wrapped the wheel with Michelin Scorcher 11 tire in the front. While in the back, the rear tire is an unexpectedly wide 240.
Yuichi acknowledged that the most difficult part of the modification was the bodywork that was entirely made of aluminum. This is a great piece of work made of metal, with the front end completely closed, with the addition of the 1950s sci-fi vibe that immediately reminds us of the work of artists like Frank Kelly Freas.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CUSTOM WORKS ZON | ULTIMATE MOTORCYCLING]
