– Custom Monkey 125 Flat Tracker Motorcycle build by Kingston Customs at Glemseck 101 –
The All-New Monkey 125 has proven to be a hit since its return to Honda’s European motorcycle line-up this summer and this later this year on this side of the pond here in the USA (2019 Monkey 125 Review / Specs & Release Date, Pricing, Colors – Click Here). It combines the modern elements of inverted forks, twin rear shocks, LCD gauges, IMU-based Anti-Lock Braking System and full LED lighting with the classic Monkey / Mini Trail look and proportions. The Monkey is sure to be a ‘go-to’ bike for use at campsites by RV-owners, and for fun on light trails, commuting tasks, easily customizable etc as the list goes on and on with what the new Monkey will be capable of.
Honda wanted to put on a big show for Glemseck 101 this year, they wanted to make a statement. Honda reached out to Dirk Öhlerking at Kingston Customs and wanted him to work his magic with a pretty short timeline but he still made it happen. They took the off-road vibe further by re-imagining the Monkey as a Flat-Tracker motorcycle. The 2019 ‘Monkey Tracker Z125’ features a host of changes including a modified frame, flat-tracker style handlebar, hand-made seat, new exhaust, foot-rests from a 1976 Elsinore 125 and gold and tricolor paint scheme to really send the project over the top.
Huge shout-out to the guys at Bike EXIF for putting together this awesome video showcasing the build on this custom 2019 Honda Monkey 125:
