Feast your eyes in this bad boy, Dirty Donkey. Of all the 60 some million versions of the infamous Honda Super Cub sold since its debut in 1958, this interpretation by Holland’s Super Motor Company hangs with the big dogs. The nickname stemmed to suggest that it was born for a dirt track, so take their word for it and spray some mud around with this one. Built to race with YX 140cc SOHC engine cranking out 15 hp to the back wheel. As far as its looks, well when its all cleaned up and you can see the love, it showcases pretty smooth. The frame was tweaked by welder Jaap Volkers, even grandma got involved to upholstered the seat unit in desert beige suede. “There’s a gap between the seat and tank, but it also gives it a bit of that 60s desert racer feel. Which I like,” explains project leader Dimitri Hettinga. Other unique features include a Honda C50 rear fender, a Honda Camino manipulated 180 degrees to fit, and vintage Tommaselli hand controls just to name a few.
