Looks pretty mean and nasty. It is a lot more of a bobber, but the stance is pretty cafe.
What engine is that? Any more info? I love creative customs like this

Yup you guessed it another CB !






R1 in a rigid frame ? Wow. The rider needs a pair for that setup. The bike already does ! I like it.

I did find some of the comments on the article entertaining.

Quote:
I can’t imagine riding it, but man would it look COOL in my office and at the local pub on bike night.


One guy makes the obvious observation:
Quote:
Beautiful bike, really love the style but having a hard time with the hard tail. I still don’t understand why so many builders stick to the hard tail design when it has such a huge negative impact on handling.
And gets this reply:
Quote:
They stick to it because there are also many advantages of the rigid frame design; hence why it was used by pretty much every motorcyle company for decades. “Suspended” bikes are heavier, and feel “slushy” compared to a rigid. People who constantly expound on the “superiority” of bikes with rear suspension probably have never owned or ridden a rigid. I’ve been riding about 20 years and havent owned anything else. (Dont plan on it either.)

Pfft, obviously...
That's why none of the race bikes over the last 50 or 60 years have had rear suspension.

See?
Now THERE is an opinion you can count as FACT. This guy obviously knows what he is talking about.






Why are people so stupid?
