This is my fictitious build that I just completed (May 2016). I would like to present my 1948 Liberty Statesman 125. It started out as a 2007 Yamaha Vino. I spun the bike back aesthetically to the '40's and designed the matching cargo trailer.
The '40's aesthetic was a loose guide. There's lots of historical inaccuracies in the build...but it was done strictly for fun. For instance, white wall tires were not common place on bikes of that era. Also, the OEM styling of the Vino is solidly rooted in the 50's.
Inaccuracies aside, the color palette I chose was muted tones of grays and oxblood...reflecting the conservative mood of the early post war era. The chrome bits are authentic pieces I collected from vintage cars. The spare gas can mounted on the bike's inner leg shield is from a European market BMW automobile. They were mounted inside the spare tire in the trunk of the car.
The bike's engine is 125cc and is bone stock. People are always surprised when I tell them the top speed is 70 MPH...although I generally do not exceed 50 MPH when towing the trailer.
Please enjoy the pics!
