CUSTOM MONGREL 125
Nov 12, 2018
Here we have a fantastic, and different looking Mutt 125cc. The bike is a 2016 Mutt Mongrel 125 which came in to us a couple of months ago from its original who had the bike from new. It had been used as a commuter bike so was looking a little tired. So we stripped it right down and gave it a full overhaul, which I will go in to more detail on below.
NOT YOUR AVERAGE MUTT
So this bike started its life as a Mongrel, but it is now more of a mix of Mongrel, Fat Sabbath, Hilts, RS-13, and our own personal touch.
We started of stripping of all the bodywork and the wheels, taking it down to just the engine in the frame. We then renewed the CDI unit and the full wiring loom due to a couple of wires that had rubbed through. We then touched up the frame where it was looking a bit tired, and also painted up the swingarm, the exhaust, and tided the wheels too. We couldn’t decide what to do with the bodywork so we flatted and painted the side panels satin black, and decided that the mudguards and tank should all have a worn look to them so we rubbed them down and created the look you see. But it looked a bit plain, so we had some fun creating a “MUTT” logo on the tank. This is just our bit of fun and to have something totally different. Personally I love it, but I know it wont be everyones taste. However you will never see another the same thats for sure!!
We then ditched the original tyres and replaced them with some good quality Continental TKC70’s, the more road focused baby brother of the TKC80’s used on the current Fat Sabbath and RS-13 models. We also swapped out the original handlebars and replaced them with some quality Renthals, on which we then put some genuine Biltwell black quilted grips. We added a headlight grill (similar to the Fat Sabbath), fitted new metal bodied indicators front and rear, and fitted a new black quilt stitched seat the same as the current Fat Sabbath.
On the mechanical side of things we have also replaced the pickup coil and generator, and the gear indicator sensor (part of the fault finding process before we discovered a rubbed through wire in the loom) and given the bike a full service.
The bullet proof 4-stroke motor is housed in our twin shock tube frame. The hand finished short front mudguard is just enough to keep the road grime out your eyes and this little puppy really barks through the flat black stainless megaphone silencer – you really need to hear one of these to appreciate the sound.
Of course the Mongrel has a 5-speed box, gear indicator, electric start and everything else you would expect to find on a modern bikes controls. Our Mutt is the perfect get out of the crowd machine, at home in the city or scratching through the country lanes. Just keep that puppy on a leash!
