This is the new AFS CUSTOM BIKES SYM ROLLER let's take a look into it. 



AFS from Taiwan has hung the drive of a Sym-Roller in a minimal chassis. Custom art at its finest. Anyone who asks why does not understand it anyway. So it is with some custom bikes that are so far removed from meaning and understanding, but simply represent manifestos of the conversion culture. Example: The Sym-Hot-Rod from AFS Custom Bikes from Tainan, Taiwan.

Tank in the frame

Gasoline in the frame is known from the XB-Buell models from 2002. This would already list the common features between the American long-stroke mallets and the hot rod from AFS. In the case of the Hot Rod, the gasoline sits in the individual central tube running from the steering head to the engine, which goes directly into the rigid, one-armed rear suspension. At the upper end, the main frame merges directly into the steering head, which carries the front wheel suspension, which is also one-sided - also rigid. The small seat made of aluminum sheet continues the rigid structure. Even if the hot rod is mechanically mobile, it is by no means orthopedic.


17 inch slicks

The highlight are the bolted disc wheels in 17 inch with slicks from Bridgestone. Only the rear wheel is braked and the chain wheel and brake disc rotate next to each other to maintain the clean look. In terms of color, AFS matches the rest of the look. Subtle. All chassis parts are powder-coated in a satin finish, the wheels are coated in gold-yellow.


Yes, it drives. No, you don't want that. It is still ingenious, and above all ingeniously simple. AFS in Taiwan take a 125 Sym drive and hang it in a self-made rigid chassis made of steel tubes, including a tank in the central tube.
