I've seen this one before but not in comparison to how it started out.

Personally I think it looks way better now than it did back then, great job! Bet it sounds pretty awesome too!

Another fine Scrambler for the growing collection!


It's amazing how a set of black wheels and some new tyres can really change the look of the Scrambler. Of course the other more subtle changes all go towards making this one a looker.

Chris Witham's insight:

Along with their original Honda Dominator this is another Kiddo Motors build I really like. There are some nice subtle touches when you start looking, it would be good if I could speak a little Spanish so I could find out a bit more about this but never mind, the pictures will do! I'll hopefully find more info with a bit more web searching.
