Super Surfer: Cloning the Honda Cub






Not ready to let go of the weekend" We’ve got the solution, and it involves a surfboard, the beach, and a cute little scooter.
This little slice of summer is called ‘El Gordo,’ [‘fat’ in Spanish] and it’s the first build from Dutch crew KRUK. Mark van Meerkerk and Ton Everaers hold down day jobs, but combine their talents after hours to make cool things.

Mark’s one of Holland’s top surfers, and works as a mechanical engineering technician and theatrical automation specialist. He’s well versed in custom motorcycles, having owned and built a bunch of them over the years.
Ton’s a graphic and audio-visual designer, and while he’s owned numerous classic bikes and cars most of his life, the custom scene is new ground for him. Both guys wrench regularly in their own sheds, but El Gordo was put together in Ton’s workshop in Delfgauw, just outside Rotterdam.

So what is El Gordo" We assumed it was a Honda Cub, but we were wrong. It’s a Super 50, a Chinese-made Cub clone imported by Super Motor Company in Amsterdam. ?It was kind of weird to chop up a brand new bike,? says Ton, ?but it saved us the hassle of rebuilding a possibly worn out engine and battling rust.?
As for the direction the guys wanted to take, that was a fairly easy decision: ?Since we?re both avid surfers and bikers, we?ve always been charmed by surf explorer bikes with board racks attached to them.?

From a distance there doesn’t seem to be much going on, other than a board rack and a new paint job. But the mods are both extensive and subtle. There’s a mix of Yamaha, Honda and Puch parts at play, sourced from auto-jumbles and the internet, along with a few off-the-shelf bits. Mark and Ton ditched the Super 50’s plastic rear fender, then welded in a shortened Honda Cub number with a neat ducktail on the end. Then they bolted on a luggage rack and taillight from their oddball pool of parts.

They also tossed the original seat, replacing it with a hand-made unit covered in an anti-slip fabric, ?so you won?t slip off when cruising around in your wetties.? You’d normally flip the seat up to access the gas cap, but the new seat has a hole in it for quick access.
?If a solution like this is good enough for vintage British race bikes it sure is good enough for El Gordo,? Ton jokes.

KRUK were on a mission to rid the little Cub look-a-like of as much bulk and plastic as possible. So they dismantled the steering and headlight assembly and rebuilt it piece-by-piece, starting with a custom-made top yoke and a set of aftermarket handlebar clamps.
The handlebars are from a 70s Honda CB, cut a little narrower to suit the bike, and capped off with Beston grips.

Keeping the bike road legal was key, so it still sports turn signals and a headlight. The guys tried to use as many of the scoot’s existing mounting points as possible, but Mark still had to whip up a bunch of small bit...
