Dimitri Hettinga manages the workshop “Super Motor Company” in Holland. He is specialized in the restoration of Scooter Honda Super Cub, as well as the construction of small custom bikes. Recently he revealed the production-ready lightweight called motorcycle ‘Lucky Punk.’
About two years ago Dimitri designed the new elements with vintage design. The result was a bike weighing 101 kg capacity and 27 hp on power to weight ratio that can be compared to heavier motorcycles Triumph Bonneville or Moto Guzzi V7. However, he quickly realized that the project failed because of complete irresponsibility of Chinese manufacturers. According to Dimitri, the first engine had the wrong specification, and there was no balance shaft.
Details and Specification Lucky Punk:
Frame: steel frame, which can be easily found in the Chinese market
Battery: Li-Ion 4.5 Ah, mounted under the seat, like the rest of electronics
Exhaust system: separate history of cooperation with the Chinese, which again produced a defective part, though Hettinga provided them ready drawings and 3D-model
Production: the European market will be a motorcycle in the first quarter of 2015
Price: 125 cc version will cost 2,500 Euros, 250-ccs – 3000 euro
