Honda CB750 Cafe Racer
The Cafe racer style started back in 1960 in Britain. Back then most of the Cafe Racers were built around iconic British motorcycle brands.
But things are changing rapidly in the 21-century with so many motorbike manufacturers on the market, choices for any one building a Cafe Racer are extensive. Japanese motorbikes are the perfect fit for the base of the Cafe Racer build. I personally like the old classic Honda motorcycles and one in particular the Honda CB750.
Honda CB550 Cafe Racer by MotoHangar
This 1978 Honda CB550 features a custom tail section and an integrated taillight. The 544 cc four-cylinder engine has been tuned and fitted with 4 into 1 headers and Supertrapp muffler. The front has been lowered and crowned with yellow tinted headlight giving the bike that vintage feel. At the rear the suspension has been upgraded and raised by an inch. The bike also has a closed cell foam seat pad, custom clip-ons and a pair of Firestone Champion Deluxe vintage tires.
The finished bike was beautifully painted by Ryan at Royal Essex in New Jersey. My personal favorite on this Honda CB550 is the tail section and the 4 into 1 headers and Supertrapp muffler. MotoHangar’s Honda CB550 has that true essence of a Café Racer and reminds you of the past!
Honda CB400 Super Four Cafe Racer Custom
It was only a matter of time before the nascent custom motorcycle industry started to blossom in China. We already have Bandit9: now here’s another recent start-up, Black Bridge.
Black Bridge is the nom de plume of Beijing-based Adrien Macera. Macera has ben tinkering with motorcycles for as long as he can remember, but this Honda CB400 is his first commercial build. “The bike was for a friend who owns a bunch of restaurants in Beijing,” says Adrien. “We normally ride on trackdays with a group of friends. But for this project, he asked if I could build a smaller-capacity cafe racer, for commuting around town.”
