They are all different in some ways. Mine has piggy back shocks. 26mm Mikuni

Andrew has gold shocks and open megaphone exhaust that sounds like a 600 single.

How do they ride, how much power? I know they are only 125cc, but in that frame work, how fast?

Its is all in perspective in our over policed world.

Mine cruises nicely at 90 kph (55 mph) with a top speed of about 110 kph (70 mph). I live in a very hilly area, so the gearing is not high as could be.

Needs better quality tires as the stock ones start to slight weave over 60 mph.

There is talk of starting single bike racing series based on the ACE.

good work on the build there- no TUV in your country? No rain?

I admire the quality of your work.

No TUV for oldtimers in The Netherlands. It's no Sahara over here but with rain I ride something else......

Sweet!!! Whereabouts in Holland do you life? If not too far (how can it be far in Holland....) I'd like to come by and do a photo shoot of the bike if that's ok with you?

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!


Very tastefully customized.

I love it!

(Even if it isn't really a cafe' by definition)

It is a bike that will get a lot of attention from other riders.
Do you have a build thread or more information and pictures?

A unique machine to be proud of and to enjoy riding
A truly "Matchless" machine.
