Honda NX 650 Dominator Scrambler

Honda NX 650 Scrambler

[:es]Una vieja Honda NX 650 Dominator fue el punto de partida de esta scrambler compacta, ágil y confiable. El chasis se recortó hacia abajo y el bastidor auxiliar completamente reconstruido a partir de cero. Las ruedas fueron reemplazados con un 18 “la delantera y 17” de la parte trasera. Las ruedas se tomaron de una Aprilia Motó 6.5. El depósito es de una Honda NSR 75cc de1987 igualmente raro e interesante. El amortiguador trasero es de una Suzuki GSX y ha reducido la altura de manera significativa, por lo que es más fácil para el piloto de dominar el dominador.

Ocultar el sistema eléctrico, la batería y todos sus componentes era un desafío particular. La solución de los chicos fue montar la CDI en la caja de herramientas, y construir una caja para la batería y el circuito de arranque bajo el asiento. La pieza final del rompecabezas eléctrica era ocultar la caja de fusibles hábilmente dentro del tubo principal del chasis.

The wheels were replaced with an 18″ up front and a 17″ out back.  The wheels were taken from an Aprilia Motó 6.5, now there’s a rare bike.  Has anyone done something interesting with one of those yet?  The tank is from an equally rare and interesting 1987 Honda NSR 75cc.  The rear shock absorber is from a Suzuki GSX and has reduced the ride height significantly, making it easier for the rider to dominate the dominator.

Hiding the electrics, battery and all of it’s components was a particular challenge. The solution the guys came up with was to mount the CDI in the toolbox, and build a case for the battery and starter circuit under the seat.  The final piece of the electrical jigsaw was to hide the fuse box cleverly inside the main frame tube.

The front and the rear mudguards, the seat unit, and the design and paint job were all done by the clearly very talented OSB crew.  And it’s the aesthetics that really push this tracker right to the top of the pile.  Many a builder can make a Dommie lighter and more agile, few can give them a look as spot on as this one.

Sometimes it’s best to let the builder sum up his work in his own words.  That’s definitely the case this time as Jordi says his aim was to “create a bike that we would like to have between our legs, but could also park in the living room.”  Thanks Jordi, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
