Super Motor Salt Shaker Custom Bike
If you like bikes screaming the old classic attitude and clean styling, then you'll love the Salt Shaker. It comes with a ton of simplicity and yet there's more to it than meets the eye. You're looking at a race bike, believe it or not!
Super Motors' product line comprised 50cc and 100cc bikes, and the manufacturers wanted something a tad bigger. And since “let's make it bigger” is usually the open door to a completely new and different project, here's this nifty piece of bike craftsmanship.
The Salt Shaker was built on a Super Cub frame receiving an additional reinforcement tube linking the fuel tank and front of the bike and now doubling as a 250cc fuel reserve. The 150cc engine has been finely tuned and can now produce 22 BHP and 13 Nm (just under 10 ft-lbs), which is quite a lot for a bike that small.
Salt Shaker boasts a 26mm Mikuni carburetor and comes with a 4-speed manual gearbox. Fitting in racing tires, Super Motors have already stated that they'll take part in the Bonneville Speedweek next year and maybe attempt some class record-breaking. But until then, you can see the The Salt Shaker in Milan, at the EICMA soon.
