1976 Honda CB550 by seangordonmurphy 1976 Honda CB550 by seangordonmurphy
So because I'm the "gear head" of comics (only because I love drawing cars and stuff), I figured I was justified in buying myself a Cafe Racer. I'm a habitual saver, so it's rare that I buy myself something nice. Thanks a million to my buddy Jim who built it for me!

Very nice bike, I'm actually thinking about building something similar in a couple of years, CB500-750 he old models are the best :-) grats on your buy and nice built by your friend.

This is so cool.  I had friends in the '70s that had scooters just like this except with the faring.  Rock on!

Have you seen any of Ewan McGregor's bikes? He's like the Jay Leno of vintage euro bikes.

This is gorgeous!  My boyfriend rides a Ducati Monster and I've been planning on getting something like this when I manage to build up a slight surplus in my savings.

Dude, that is so awesome. I wish I could get something like this, I ended up getting a 1996 Honda Nighthawk CB750 a few years ago, and I love riding it and drawing it. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet ride! For a café racer, though, I'd have gotten a Triumph, a Norton, or a Royal Enfield (the latter would be my favourite).

A very cool bike, Honda's are as reliable as the day is long.
Please wear a full face helmet, not some retro half helmet. And ear plugs!

Really nice seat and rear. Many cafe racer builders fuck the rear up really badly, but this one looks really good! Also, I love the red frame. Great color combination.

Thanks! I think he used a Triumph part for the back end--so it's a little more legit for a Cafe Racer even though it's just a Honda.
