    The July '016 Bad Ass Modification of the Month Contest !!

    Not everyone has a full bike project thread going, however most of you make bobs & bits, tweak things and complete mods to improve bikes in an ongoing process of continuous performance improvement. That never. Ever. Ends. Ever.

    So we at Ichiban Moto are sponsoring the "Bad Ass modification of the month" award !

    The winner will be awarded awesome bragging rights, admiration from their peers, recognition from the international motorcycle community and five out of five Ichiban Moto stickers !
    ( That's right, five out of five 100% authentic and Bad Ass "cetified" Ichiban Moto Stickers! )

    Post a picture or video of that thing you made this month along with a brief description : That part or tool you had to mod. That whatzit you carved from billet. Or wood. You guys/gals mod, make and alter things in some very creative and practical ways to make things work. And that should be shared, so here is thread to post it !

    At the end of July, we will post a poll of the finalists* for everyone to vote on.

    *a paired down selection of finalists will be selected by the Ichiban Moto staff for you to vote on

    Customized a Hodaka Road Toad tank for a 78 Puch Maxi top tank conversion. Original tank was far to wide. Found the center line, cut it in half. Then used a dial indicator and some dykem and removed nearly 2" from the center of the tank. The tunnel also needed to be changed in order to sit the way I wanted it to. Cut the old tunnel out, bent some 18ga plate in the vice, and tacked it in. Will be done welding soon.

    I am not sure what I hate more: that it's a puch moped, that you ruined a hodaka tank, or what ever the hell is lurking in the background of one of your pics.

    Why would you want to do that to a moped?

    There are guys that build some interesting "racing" mopeds (because yes anything can be raced) and really interesting performance "puchs".....and then there are guys who just want a "style". I mean I get why he did it, I just don't like it. In my head Kreidler set the standard for small (50cc) racing machines a long time ago and the further you get from that the more wrong it gets...but hey, I don't have any stickers to give out so it's up to ichiban.

    how cool is this:

    The top one, looks like a bicycle on steroids! Id take it around a track. The bottom Puch, I like that actually. Look's good for what it is.

    The silver one and the red one are both Puch Magnums. This isn't a build thread so why I'm doing it isn't relevant.

    It's a moped entered in the "bad ass modification" contest, makes me wonder why.
