Hi Guys n Gals,

each day I view the petrolicious website and today's new video is of a bit of American muscle, in my favourite colour! Could this be fate for my colour selection?

Orange of course was once a Kawasaki race colour, as was red too - so it fits with the pedigree Smile

I have one in a bronze colour that needs restoration and will post a couple of pics when I gat home.

I really like the burnt orange Smile


Looking forward to seeing the bronze beastie shots but I reckon the burnt orange is the top of my listing!

the big thing in Thailand is to bin the spokes and fit alloys in all the different flouro colours. I'm heading there in September so i will keep a look out for the AR. I was in Bali last year and I recall seeing the school kids riding the AR80

I'm on the case... I like them too.
Yes alloy rims on the red bike in the pic, AR125 came with chrome steel rims in Thailand unless Super Sports limited edition models

You need a different front disk too as its slightly offset to match the narrower hub on the AR125 spoked wheels
