The Maxiscoot Forum is a space where 50cc scooter and moped fans can exchange ideas – to share tips and tricks and technical know-how, to trade spare parts or to present custom projects.
In our custom bike section, we present Jeremy alias Breakers80’s Aprilia SR L. Vuitton, one of the most beautiful custom bikes of the European 50cc scene.
The SR in candy colors, with Vuitton seat and lots of chrome was the big winner in the Best Facelift at the Custom Show 2010 in Saarbrücken, Germany, and turned lots of heads.
Here are the different versions and details of the Aprilia SR custom project.
It all started in 2007 when Jérémy bought a black and red SR and equipped it with a Bidalot CVT and a Bidalot exhaust. Six months later, the first modifications were evidence that the owner was aiming high: fork tubes, brake calipers, rims, crankshaft, variator cover and water pump were all polished to a high gloss. The fairing panels were painted in Subaru blue. Two galvanized aluminium plates were put on the floorboard. The Bidalot exhaust was replaced by a polished Metrakit SP with a carbon silencer.
Jérémy used the winter break to continue working on his custom project. The cockpit was cleaned up, with new Pro Grip grips, polished brake cylinder with Stage6 SSP brake cylinder covers, indicator lenses and underbodywere painted black, the original fork tubes and mudguard were replaced by their corresponding Aerox counterparts, the front brake disc was exchanged for an Oversize brake disc Stage6 R/T and the exhaust bracket was painted blue.
After an accident in the spring of 2008, in which his scooter was partially scrapped, Jérémy decided to repaint it. The new version of the SR stunned everyone with its glossy orange chameleon finish. He also took the opportunity to replace the cockpit with a naked version (Str8 handlebar stem and chromed handlebar) and reinstall the polished and lowered original fork tubes.
After ScooterPower Weekend 2008, Jérémy modified the front and underbody of his SR, he painted both like the rest of the plastics. At the end of the year, the inner front fairing was smoothed out, the wheelbase of the scooter was extended with a custom-made system and, to add to the racing look, a NOS bottle was installed above the rear wheel.
At the beginning of 2009 Jérémy puttied the headlight mask and mounted Stage6 Slicks. And his bike is attracting attention; Scoot’n Scoot even has an article about it in their October issue!
The engine in this version:
2010 marks a turning point in the development of Breakers80’s SR, the time is right for the well-known Vuitton version. Jeremy put a lot of work into this stunning, award-winning custom bike.
The first, not really in-your-face obvious modification is on the chassis, which now features a central shock absorber with a rigid underfloor bar. The rims and variator cover are now chrome plated and the brake cylinders are CNC-machined from aluminium. New gold-coloured fuel hoses and yellow Pro Grip grips round off the look of this new version.
The look was further enhanced by a new Candy Gold Extreme paint finish, it was used on all fairing parts, the front brake disc, brake calipers, the fork, the wheel nut cover and the Stage6 stand. There are also two new frame components: a modified Aerox DMP underbody and a custom-made tail.
The additions that makes this two-wheeler so unique are the saddle, floorboard, indicator lenses and starter cover – all of it are covered with genuine Vuitton leather! Awesome!
