CB200 “Shotgun”

This is our first full-on project. It was finished in 2011 and is still with us. It’s a cb200 with a cl200 exhaust system.

The rims are from a Derbi Senda moped and the front brake and clutch were both upgraded to hydraulics. The wooden fenders are also made in-house by using 3 layers of thin wood,…
