Forty-seven years old but what a looker!

It’s too bad there aren’t any “before” pictures of this 1972 Honda CB 450, since the way it looks today, you’d never know it was 47 years old. I hope the custom cafe trend continues unabated. These builds seem to keep getting better: cleaner, more understated, really pro results. This one from German outfit Crooked Motorcycles is no exception.

Behold This Futuristic Custom Bike With Very Old Tech

Behold This Futuristic Custom Bike With Very Old Tech Are girder front ends making a popularity comeback? A custom build called the “Extreme Machine” lets you know, right out there, what you’re going to see before you see it. Meet “Macchina Estrema,” the extreme, and extremely Italian, custom build. Simone Conti Motorcycles, a one-man outfit out of Modena, Italy, created this interesting little thing for this past May’s Motorcycle Arts & Designers (MOARD) exhibition, held in Milan’s historic Palazzo del Ghiaccio.

The story is, two friends named Jakob and Dominikus founded a custom motorcycle shop without meaning to–-they both enjoyed customizing motorcycles, but didn’t set out to form a business. You know how it goes, you build something, and someone likes it enough to buy it, so you build another one. These two found this very old CB 450 in a friend’s garage, and thought it might be worthy of restoration.

It hadn’t run in at least eight years, and wasn’t stored very well: everything about it needed refinishing. Bless Soichiro Honda’s heart, they changed out all the fluids and filters, fitted a new battery, and that old engine started right up. That’s usually the first test when gauging whether a bike is worth restoring, and it passed with flying colors.

Latest Yamaha Yard Built XSR900 Is A Custom Vision In Blue That is a really gorgeous blue. The Yamaha Yard Built line of custom bikes is a great concept, and I don’t know why more bike manufacturers don’t have a program like it. Manufacturers working with custom builders to make the bikes more easily customizable helps everyone. You Too Can Customize:This Custom Bike: Come Get Offended At Terrible Welds With MeReimagined And Amazing: Custom Honda CB1000R The latest entry in this series comes from the garage of JvB-moto, a German outfit founded by Jens vom Brauk, who is known for his minimalistic custom designs.

They dubbed the build “From Beast to Beauty” and having seen plenty of unloved old UJMs, I believe the “beast” part. They stripped the bike down to the frame, repainted or refinished everything, de-tabbed the frame and bobbed its rear end. The tiny new lithium-ion battery is stuffed into the custom tail section, and the airbox replaced with pods which leaves the rest of the bike with a clean, simple look. That little 450cc parallel twin engine sits like a shiny black jewel in a shiny black setting.

Because no cafe build is complete without wrapped headers, it seems, they wrapped and mounted up a 2-into-2 Hattech exhaust to replace the stocker. If nothing else, the system adds to the blacked-out look of the bike and probably lends one heck of a singing voice.

The original handlebars have been stripped in favor of clip-ons and, we hope, once the bike is on the road, some bar-end mirrors. Since we all know about the wiring situation on very old Japanese motorcycles, the team at Crooked rebuilt the harness and replaced the original dash, taillight and turn signals in favor of small, clean, modern units all by Motogadget.

Restored 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper Defines Elegance

Restored 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper Defines Elegance Get ready to win awards in this beauty! Just about all cars from the '40s and early '50s had a certain timeless beauty to them, but there is something a little more special about Packards from this era. Take this fully restored 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper for example, which looks and drives like new and is currently listed for sale by the Classic Car Club of America for just $48,000. This car has been meticulously restored with everything from the typical new paint, chrome and interior to mechanical elements like wiring, ignition and brakes to make sure this car drives as good as it looks.

This CB 450 is now a thing of rare beauty but also, even at its advanced age, puts out 45hp, so on its new YSS suspension and Coker classic Diamond tires it’s definitely no slouch. Are you inspired yet? We sure are.

Millennial minimalism to the max. Mini-bikes have swelled in popularity in recent years. The light weight and affordability of the models make them perfect for beginners and Millennials without a lot of coin to spend. With the battle between Kawasaki’s Z125 and the Honda Grom just heating up, the prevalence of sub-250cc motorcycles only seems to have increased with each riding season. In places like Thailand, where small-displacement bikes reign supreme, custom shops have specifically catered to the segment for years. One such shop is K-Speed of Bangkok.
