From stock-drag unfinished set-up reborn to a classic street tracker concept. If donor bikes were of concern, we always head on to a get-go of what’s readily and quickly available in the market, and surely of course a bang in the buck. A bike that has proven itself, surely for us pinoys talking about public transportation.
Once maybe pulling and carrying 4-5 people from point A to point B, a side car, smokey pipe, and that distinct buzzing, erring stock muffler noise. It may be true, we hate to love the Kawasaki HDIII. This feature tells us what makes up a good, simple yet exciting custom local build. Call this project fun.
Remember the Project Trash made by Fart Monkeez Garage? This must be the relative.

Kawasaki HDIII from Drag to Street Rat Tracker
“Around last week of December a good friend of mine (Hubert Lumbania) who is the owner of Grasa Pomade (Grasalifestylin Vintage Customs) brought his Kawasaki HD III to our garage. He saw the bikes that I have built and expressed his interest in having one…”

“Currently he owns a Honda TMX cafe racer, he saw some street tracker projects that I have done and he seemed to like them. The base bike is a Kawasaki HD III, it was brought to the Tokwa Party Garage HQ not in stock condition but on a drag setup…”
“..I had to replace almost everything with brand new parts as the drag setup is very different from what Hubert wants. I started with the rims and the tires and replaced them with wide rims & tires, I went straight through the fork and the headlight…”
“..The fork needed a little repair as the spring is not present when the bike was brought to me. The stock handle bar was also replaced with a wider handle bar. The bike was originally equipped with a tune-pipe and was replaced with the stock HD III pipe. The ignition was also relocated under the seat pan…”
“..I equipped it with a new air filter and a new 2t pump. The chain and sprockets were also replaced with new ones to give it a shine. I had the chassis cut and fabricated the seat-loop as well as the seat pan. I shaved the original seat until I got the shape that I was looking for. I then wrapped it with dark brown leather to give it a vintage look…”
“..As per Hubert’s request, there were no paint jobs done on this bad boy, the owner wanted it to have a “Rat-style” look…“
“..With the trust of several people, the Tokwa Party Garage team again has been given a chance to build a bike that the team and the owners can be proud of. With their trust and support, a new street tracker was born…”
Without the help of these people, this project wouldn’t be done:
