I love everything about this bike. Here’s the list of awesome:

1. Headlight tallest part of the bike. Removed speedo and tach give it a trackbike look.

2. Air Filters removed for stubbies attached right to the carbs. This gives room for:

3. Custom pipes. They used the space the air filter used to take up to snake some side pipes through. Short, sharp, and probably loud as hell.

4. Fenders removed. Gives the bike a shorter, more agressive stance. This, coupled with the cafe seat draws the eyes to the wheels.

5. Air holes drilled in rear drum – not too many and nice uniformity to them.

6. Stuck with the original tank. The only color on the bike, and it’s a nice one too.

7. Custom horn. No other info on it, but I can tell it isn’t stock.

8. Tiny bullet-style rear signals, although I’m not sure what the point is as the bike is clearly not street legal (Lack of front signals, no speedo, etc)

9. Custom rear pegs with linkage to rear brake and shifter.

10. Black hand levers.

With all the leaning out they did with the bike, I’m surprised they kept the electric start. It fills a nice spot on the front of the engine I suppose, and looks very clean.

I’d love to have a closer look at this bike. What a lean little bulldog of a bike. This is obviously a CB450 (dual overhead cam, front disk brake) and they did a really great job with it. Salut!

    Nice, but I wonder what happens when you’re riding along splitting the lanes waving at the chicks and wind at your step when all of the sudden a giant BUG flies into your mouth?

    What the heck are you going to do?


    Why didn’t you think of that?

    Because they are made out of protein.

    I love those bubble visors. The one pictured on that site is the coolest. So is that asian lass with the tassels and goggles.

    Bugs in your teeth and a really wet/dirty butt crack, well at least the bike is clean!

    Great find! I too love the original tank. I’m not so fond of the custom pipes as I think the original pipes on the 450 and 350 CB’s are the best, but I’m happy that we can now both agree that the but stopper cafe seat is cool!

    Jaxon Woods, huh? Doesn’t ring a bell. Sorry.
