Not a Vulcan, but you have to admit, pretty cool bike just the same!!!!

I did the paint and bodywork on this bike (Custom Motorcycle Painting | Custom Painter) for a customer of mine in Bermuda. Here's the kicker, it's a Yamaha 125cc Dragstar! Yes, 125cc, not 125ci!!!!!! In Bermuda they have limitations on what you can ride as far as displacement is concerned, so you have to make do with what you've got! Needless to say, this bike's been gone through with a LOT of $$$ and custom mods.....

I love it!.I've been to Bermuda twice and the bikes down there are way different than here in the states.I think the biggest displacement is maybe 250cc's,and the cruisers are scaled down versions of big bikes here.My last trip I saw a Honda CBR 125 two stroke running around,and it sounded awesome,along with some other bikes I've never heard of before....Nice work!!

Awesome! I bet it is fun to ride. That's one hell of a back fender!

Great looking ride..... but, it looks like the rear fender is just about touching the ground while on the kickstand! Seems like that could be a problem when leaning into a turn?

My wife has been talking about getting a 125cc for her first bike. I have been suggesting something a little bit bigger. But now that she saw this one, I got orders to go down and get it. That is a beautiful bike. That is an incredable paint job. Lots of respect on the time you took to do it.

125's are very popular over here as it's the basic learner bike size seeing as we have a tierd license system and age restrictions.

not sure i like the shape of the rear fender and the heinous Dolce & Gabbana seat cover, but the paintwork is outstanding!!! :mrgreen:

You don't have to have a bike with a big engine to have fun. And it is very nice paint.

Nice bike but I have a question. Why the passenger pegs when clearly there is no room for a passenger?

That bike must have taken 1st place if it ever has been entered on a bike show. Well done. Nice sharp looking ride.

Very cool Bermuda bike. I'll have to check it out next summer when I go to Bermuda for the 15th time.

The rules in Bermuda are, no 2 stroke over 100cc, no 4 stroke over 150cc.
But like everywhere people just can't help but get the most our of their bikes, like getting tuned exhausts & bigger jugs.
One buddy of mine has this Honda V-twin cruiser that's supposed to be 150cc... yea, right...

Bermuda also has a motorcycle racing club that uses a track at the airport
