AFT Halia, A Custom Fighter Built by Models [Photo Gallery]
As strange as it would sound AFT is both a custom workshop and a model agency, and to make things even more exciting, the girls themselves are pretty involved in the bikes. Halia, which is a Hawaiian term for “Rememberance”, is a bike built in honor of the late father of Nalani, one of the girls in the team, who passed away just before this awarded bike kicked off.
The Halia comes with a 4-cylinder Honda VT750 engine receiving a lot of tweaks to make it fit the bike and its racing purpose better. With 104.75 mph / 168.5 km/h recorded in Bonneville, the AFT Halia promises even more, as the 5,000 rpm rev limit would give way in the future to an 8,000 rpm Dynatek 3 unit.
The radiator is under the seat, so that's why you don't see it at the first glance, while the spoked wheels and custom in-your-face tank make for a very sleek old school style. The AFT Halia just won the 2012 AMD Championships and as a final, really spicy detail, the girls account for 60% of the whole work.
