I stumbled upon a great bike which is shown on this page. But when I did some research on the project, I saw an even greater story behind the build:

Sofi Tsingos from GT-Moto practically grew up in an aircraft maintenance shop with her father. The shop was full of old cars and motorcycles, so a wrench was the toy of her choice. In the workshop, they’ve worked for years on high quality, hand built parts and materials. It was just a matter of time that this craftsmanship “flew over” to motorcycles and cars. This is where the project “GT-Moto” started. It began with pure passion. But there is something different: they also are a strong social angle with supporting cancer research. To do this, they allocate a portion of all sales to select organizations who are committed to the eradication of cancer and the support of those who suffer from this terrible disease.

As I said, I stumbled upon a great bike. GT-Moto took a ’72 Honda CB450 and created this beautiful CB450 Café Racer:
