GL-500 AKA Ass-less Grasshopper (#supermotoscramblerstein)
Dubbed the “Ass-less Grasshopper” our plan is to take this bullet-proof honda GL-500 and turn it into a “supermotoscrambler”. Come back to see more as we combine some nice bits on this build. A few of things in store are the a drz 400 front end, 17inch wheels front & rear, modified rear disc brakes & custom vintage high pipe exhaust. Should be fun, right?
The first step for us is always getting the donor bike to run. Thankfully this Honda Gl came to us in running condition but the previous owner said there was a problem with the starter relay. Turns out the relay was fine but the wires to the starter button were, well… not right. Once that was sorted and the teeny tiny LiON battery was connected the engine turned over and the bike ran.
Now we know it runs and we know it is not the prettiest platform to build on but we have ideas. keep coming back to see the progress and as always you can find most everything about our builds on instagram.
