Making dreams a reality: Custom Africa Twin

POSTED: 12/01/2023

An Africa Twin to remember

We love taking on new custom projects here at Maidstone Honda. Motorcycle modifications, big or small, give us the opportunity to show off our custom skills and for some of our customers, make a motorcycle more practical. Speaking of more practical, we've recently taken on a project for Paul, who is an amputee - meaning he was in need of an entire brake relocation and ABS refitting on his new Africa Twin.

Scroll down to find out what was involved...

And if you have any custom requirements of your own, big or small - simply give us a call on 01622 713950.

What was needed?

Our customer, Paul, was in need of the rear brake pedal being relocated to the left-hand-side brake lever. The model we were working with was an Africa Twin Dual Clutch Transmission, so removing a clutch lever wasn't necessary, however we would need to install the correct cables and parking brake.

The process

Firstly, we stripped back the fairing to make room for the necessary modifications. We then removed the rear brake pedal and swapped it out for a left-hand lever, which also meant removing the existing brake lines and installing new cables - which we mapped through the fairing. Modifying a clutch unit, we transformed it into a new braking unit to sit above the left lever. After these changes were made, we then added an X-ADV's parking brake from another DCT model, to ensure easier usability of the bike.

What else did we add?

- Crash bars -
- Spotlights -
- Extra indicator and brake lights -
- A higher windscreen -
- Denali accessories and lights -
- Hand guards -
- Headlight protection -
- Maximum comfort saddle -

Custom Africa Twin and new Rider

A huge congratulations!

Paul has in fact only recently passed his motorcycle tests! So we want to wish Paul huge congratulations from everyone here at Maidstone Honda, and we wish you many happy rides aboard your brand new and super awesome custom Africa Twin.

Paul would like to give a huge shoutout and say thanks to the NABD, The National Association for Bikers with a Disability, who helped to make this project possible.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
