Onehandmade Spruces Up a Honda Hunter Cub with a Baja-Inspired Redux

Dec 21, 2021

As much as we thoroughly enjoy seeing elaborate and immensely transformative custom motorcycle builds, we can still fully appreciate one-off builders taking the less-is-more approach, radically altering the character of a bike through only a handful of key tweaks. A stellar example of this is the latest two-wheeled work from Qun Hung of Taiwan’s Onehandmade, who has just bestowed a Honda Hunter Cub with a handful of minor yet character-changing modifications.

Alterations to the CT125 include a custom rear luggage rack that allows the rider to opt for either a passenger seat pad or a Pelican-style hard storage box. The build’s bodywork has been cloaked in a sand livery with custom white Kanji script paired with Von Dutch-style pinstriping while the stock seat has been reupholstered in a black-on-black diamond-stitched Alcantara cover, courtesy of C&W Leather. The bike’s lighting setup is now comprised of a protected, Baja-style dual headlight arrangement with yellow lenses, along with blacked-out indicators front and rear, and a taillight from Onehandmade’s own in-house parts catalog. On top of now being fortified behind a set of crash bars, the 125cc air-cooled single at the heart of the build has also received a high-mounted Moriwaki Engineering exhaust and a header set behind a bespoke heat shield. Other modifications and upgrades include knobby Duro tires wrapped around spoked wheels, adjustable aftermarket rear shocks, a centrally-mounted smartphone mount, custom folding passenger foot-pegs, horizontally slotted side covers, a side intake cover from K-Speed’s Diablo parts catalog, an old-school high-mount scrambler-style front fender, a one-off rear fender, and a new set of handlebars that have been fitted with Biltwell grips, custom switchgear, and tiny bar-end mirrors.

While Qun typically deals in markedly more involved custom builds, his ability to so dramatically alter the personality and appearance of a motorcycle through only a dozen or so key changes undeniably speaks to Onehandmade’s overall talent when it comes to both design and execution.
