Readers rides: the Panama Xpress

Suzy GN125 custom tracker from Panama

Jeff Campagna from Panama purchased this 2012 Suzuki GN125 from the Panama City courier company and named it after the seller… He took right down the bike to the frame and rebuilt it. The engine was completely overhauled and enamel coated black. The headlight cage was built out of local chicken wire. The tank was stripped and left raw and finally oiled to stop the salt water breeze from rusting it. Forks were rebuilt. Rear suspensions were raised and the forks lowered. New thick tires. The entire project costed less than USD1500, donor included. Little bastards can be cheap. 

A Panama, Jeff Campagna ha comprato usata questa Suzuki GN125 del 2102 dalle Poste locali e l’ha chiamata Xpress, il nome della società venditrice... Ha quindi smontato interamente la moto e l’ha ricostruita. Il motore è stato completamente revisionato e riverniciato a smalto nero. La protezione del faro è stata realizzata con una rete metallica reperita localmente. Il serbatoio è stato sverniciato al grezzo e finito a olio per prevenire la corrosione salina. La forcella è stata ricostruita e sfilata. L’interasse degli ammortizzatori incrementato. La sezione dei pneumatici è stata maggiorata. L'intero progetto è costato meno di 1500 dollari, moto compresa. Le piccole bastarde possono essere a buon mercato.

  1. I love those tiny 125 cafe racers but wait a second. Where's the chain? Is it why it costed less than 1500 dollars??

    1. I could only get the photographer before I had bought the new chain so I had to take the photos without the chain on. Haha. Good eye.
