One of the reasons to start with BikeBrewers is to get and give inspiration on building custom motorcycles. One of our Dutch readers, Oz, got his hands on a ’79 Honda CB550 and turned it into a one-off machine:
Oz takes his hobby very serious and overhauled the complete motorcycle. Every part has been taken care of, rebuilt and/or repainted.
To create something unique, Oz handcrafted a custom rear swing arm for the monoshock suspension. Well not really “single”, since he used a double set of shocks.
He rebuilt the engine and painted it with 2k finish. Rebuilt and rejetted the carb’s to match the open filters and the custom made 4 in 1 exhaust system. Other custom parts are the rear seat and subframe.
For a real vintage touch he made is own headlight and fitted in a small speedo.
This CB550 Café Racer is his second custom motorcycle and we can’t wait to see more of him!
