You know when you just want to get somewhere without people getting in your way? The Mongrel is just for that purpose.
Whilst the Mongrel shares a lot of the classic lines and styling cues vintage machines it has a dark side. There is no chrome or pretty paint. We opted for satin black and silver finishes for that industrial thump-you-in-the-throat look.
The Mongrel runs 18″ wheels front and rear with fully blacked out satin rims and spokes with 4.10×18 chunky vintage style tyres. The extra wide front end and rims give the Mongrel a subtly aggressive stance. The low wide black bars and brown diamond grips allow you to hunker down over the tank on the slim line tan seat to get where you are going, whilst looking suitably bad ass. The halogen headlamp gives you extra visibility and a tight little LED retro tail lamp sharpens up the street-savvy lines. Satin black rear custom shocks finish off the stealth appeal.
The bulletproof 4-stroke motor, now fuel injected for a sharper, tighter response is housed in our twin shock tube frame. A combined braking system with disc’s front and rear give you that extra stopping power and road confidence. Slick, hand finished short satin black 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.
This dog features some finer details you might not notice straight away, but they sure set this beast apart from the competition. Black lightweight anodised aluminium parts in the form of super-neat indicator brackets; a set of short rider and pillion pegs; and a drilled aluminium gear lever and shift peg.
Take a look at the chunky little posterior of a Mutt and you’ll see four beautifully machine CNC nuts holding the rear shocks on.
We’ve also been busy with some sheet metal work, the rear master cylinder cover gives the bikes a lower-slung more aggressive look that would make Bruce Wayne proud.
This custom street dog has a 5-speed box, gear indicator, electric start and everything else you would expect to find on modern bikes. The Mongrel 125cc is the perfect get out of the crowd machine, at home in the city or scratching through the country lanes.
