Many of today’s motorcycle enthusiasts started riding bicycles. That’s where freedom began for many of us, to be honest. The good folks over at AFS Custom Bikes are taking us back in time with their latest creation. Inspired by BMX bikes of the past, the Taiwan-based outfit has customized an SYM Symba 100 into something completely bespoke and unique.
What started as an SYM Symba 100, a Taiwanese-made rendition of Honda’s Cub, has been completely transformed. In fact, little of the original bike remains. However, the bike features a rigid frame that was modeled after 20” BMX bikes that holds an engine that sits just inches from the ground. The bike’s seat post and swing-arm have also been integrated into the framework, as has the fuel cell.
The fully custom fork supports the front end, which makes for quite an interesting look. The custom intake and exhaust hug the engine, while a jockey shifter and striking wheels are actually spare car parts that have been modified. The Bridgestone racing slicks are a nice touch, while the custom fork and swing-arm boast a single-sided approach.
AFS Custom Bikes has created something special with this one. Check out this impressive machine in the images and head over to AFS to find out more. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more motorcycles, custom creations, and rides of all sorts.
