Herb's 150 Beauty
Our Feature Bike this week comes from Herb Suesskow with his immaculate and very original Honda NSR150SP, This one really impressed our team.
Herb brought the bike a few years ago, from the original owner, who unfortunately fell ill shortly after he got it. It had 600km on the clock, and was put in storage for about ten years, Herb purchased it and brought it back to life, "it was real hard to start when I got it" say's Herb, so he rebuilt new the carburetor, Which fixed that problem. Herb changed all the oils and fluids, put on a Tyga exhaust and rear sets. "At 50 years old this is the most fun bike I've ever owned". Herb Explains. "I've decided to sell, there's something else i want".

Ronita Print Feature Bike (May 2015)
In early 2015, I bought a HONDA NSR150sp. It has always been my dream to have one since I was a high school student, and finally, 10 years later, it came true. Unfortunately, this bike has not been produce anymore and becomes a rare bike.
Well, before continuing this story, let me introduce myself. My name is Roni, I have a digital printing business with one of our product lines is on motorcycles and cars wrapping. My digital printing workshop is located inTangerang Selatan, Indonesia, the same city as where I live now.
Based on my business, I have a passion to change my motorcycle to be more modern and dynamic. I want to show everyone: even with this old motorcycle, we can make it fresher and more modern by choosing a good design. So, I picked this design after I thought about it for one week with my team.
In this modification I used some special colours, as follows:
1. Highlighter Orange, I used this colour because this color is one of HRC color
2. Reflective Colour, for NSR lettering and my company’s name:RONIta Digital Printing, so, when the letters are exposed to light it will glow
3. Chrome, I used this colour for dressing the frame andto make this part shinier
4. Gradations of Colours, I chose this as a sign that this modification was made from digital printing process.
5. The colour of carbon, for luxurious effect. I used for the behel part.
I combined all the above colours to get a dynamic and modern effect for my HONDA NSR150sp.
Since this is not a new motorcycle, we need to make some body repairs first before we can stick the stickers on it.
After all repairs were finished, we printed and installed the stickers to this motorcycle. For the wheels we used painting method because it’s not possible to stick a vinyl sticker on it
And 3 weeks later here is the result
