Honda 650 Muxima | By Ton-up Garage

Our Friday custom motorbike crush comes from Portugal’s Ton-Up Garage. Commissioned by a client who needed a bike that could handle both city streets and backcountry dirt tracks, this awesome Honda 650 custom named "Muxima” was stripped to its essentials, giving the bike a minimal look and shedding a lot of visual weight, changing completely the original look and style of the bike. They finished it off beautifully with a custom-made leather seat, some knobby off-road tires, and an elegant earthy paint job. More photos of this masterpiece after the jump.

We love the details on this, beautiful antique green leather based saddle, and great minimal chrome paint work....
