Bivouac is a custom 1971 Honda SL-70.
  • The front end is a hybrid of Honda CB/SL/CT parts.
  • The disc brake is a mechanical cable actuated unit from a 1974 CB125s. Both wheels have been re-laced for the desired size.
  • The rear swing arm is from a 1984 XR100.
  • The tank and seat angles have been modified to be more horizontal.
  • The exhaust header is made from three pieces of various pipes, including a section from a garden umbrella pole.
  • The muffler is a Cobra and came off a Honda ATC125.
  • The battery, light bulbs, and regulator/rectifier are 6 volts. The engine is 12 volt CDI.
  • The rear fender was moved backwards and the kickstand was lengthened.

I did all the paint and welding myself. The green color is a Honda automobile color from 2008 called Kiwi Green Pearl. The frame color is Oil Rubbed Bronze and looks golden brown in the sun.

This is my 7th custom mini build since 2008. This one is called Bivouac. I hope you like it.

Yes this photo was taken in the living room. With the wife's approval! And that's the CRF100 engine swap in the background.

I have no idea how to get photos to post to the reply! Grrr.

Ryan,

I have been a long time fan (aka YSRCali) of your YSR's and builds. You should add pics along with your youtube link

Manimal, Thanks for the attachment help!

You should come out to Atwater sometime. It was pleasantly empty of other riders on Thanksgiving Day. We spent five hours turning laps. I even did a couple 'handicap' races with my daughter. My NSR not above third gear against my daughter on her stock CRF70. I raced HARD to win and she killed me, twice.

Frame model is C110, also known as a "Sport-50" or "Sport Cub," which was the sporty version of the Super Cub. These were some of the first Hondas imported into the US. This is a '64, but they imported between about 62-68. The "little Honda" the Beach Boys sang about. They'd have sung faster if it were a 160.

Just cause your piece is at the gunsmith, it doesn't mean you're not a gunfighter. You need a back-up piece. ↔ russ69
