Just finished the Cafe project, 1979 CX500, epoxy primer, 2 into one exhaust, a few billet pieces, equaled a fun winter project.
Had to clean up the garage a little, while they were out I took a picture of the “BOYS” all together Have a great evening, I check out your site daily and enjoy all of the different rides.
Nice bike and great stable. Thanks Don!
Nice little Honda “on the rack”…
UPDATE: Reader Submittal. A “Carbon Fiber CBX…
Redbird posted a good link to more pics in the comments section over on Do The Ton. Check it out. And Thanks Redbird!
Kurt sends in this stunner from a local bike night of his:
Steve, I love your blog, please keep up the great work! This is a insane carbon-fiber CBX I took pics of at our local bike night at Pinellas Park , Fl Quaker Steak on 2-23-11. This spot draws 1000’s of bikes on a good night. sorry I don’t have more info for you. I’ve got more pics of various nights if you’d like some.
There’s a lot of love in that bike. That swingarm is a nice touch too. I’m curious about the tank. Is that solid Carbon fiber or is it an overlay? Looks trick either way but a real CF tank would be quite a build.
Beautiful Honda 450.
Back when they still had vintage events and races at Daytona you’d see bike like these all over the place… I do love those pipes.
Update: CL77 Hybrid.
Just got this info from Sam Simmons who sent me the pic:

I’d requested the pic because I’m interested in building similar,but
basing it on a CL77 with 4:4 high pipes(no baffles,only Snuff-R-Nots for
that ‘right’ sound).
And,there are other variations of this theme,using the CB350F and 400F
chassis as the basis.
That’s all I know,Steve…..
This excellent bike was sent to me a while back and the e-mail got lost in a bit of an onslaught of messages that I received at that time. I can’t find the original message so if it was you please let me know so I can give proper credit. Thanks
A tasty Honda cafe…
There’s a LOT of nice bikes out there being let go of. Wish I had some coin to spend 😦
Reader Ride. A converted Honda Dream 50R!
Doug Nassif sends in this trick little conversion.
2004 HRC Dream 50R, conversion to street legal.
Headlight too big? That’s me!
Thanks again Doug. Man that looks like fun. Those overhead cams on that small cylinder are too cool. And I bet all the other bikes have headlight envy! 🙂
Outsatnding new Honda Cafe From a great new blog.
Do yourself a favor and go check out the rest of these pics over on Mutant Moto (link fixed)
Bret really gets it.
Thanks for the pics Bret.
And a VERY unusual manifold setup. A 4 cylinder manifolded to dual carbs. Very trick and probably a lot easier to tune.
