Zeus Custom’s Honda Monkey 125 ‘JAAK’ Is A Testament To The Bobber Aesthetic

When you’re told to envision a bobber motorcycle, characteristics like large ape hanger bars and a low-slung suspension are plentiful. Certainly, the platform matters. But for one of Thailand’s leading cycle modifiers, Zeus Custom, bending the rules is what makes each proprietary project worth it — a mindset that’s been reinforced by the company’s one-of-a-kind Honda Monkey build.

The Honda Monkey 125 “JAAK Project” began when Zeus was approached by a client looking for the perfect platform to grab a coffee, ride to the office, and turn heads on a daily basis. As such, the need for a large, cumbersome platform was immediately dismissed by the team, who fell in love with the accessibility of the Monkey. This intuitive, but bizarre, machine was acquired to become a donor for the project, and it wasn’t long before the client’s love for the bobber style won Zeus over. To keep things comfortable for a full-sized rider, the company implemented a specialized U-style handlebar, a higher fuel tank with a sloping angle at the rear, and a new rear frame to house the bike’s single seat. In true bobber fashion, the Monkey’s suspension has been adjusted in the rear, giving it 190mm of ride height, and complementing its double-cradle frame. A hidden battery box and black anodized aluminum exhaust manifold — outfitted with compressed glass mesh to keep its tone aggressive and low — round out the boisterous bike.
