We were approached by a Dutch guy looking for a bike, Bob. Dutch people are tall in general (with the exception of the guys at Wrench Kings maybe…), but even for a Dutch guy Bob is tall… Really tall! And of course he needed a bike to fit his posture.
Together we searched for a good basis and we decided to use a Honda CB900 Bol d’Or as a donor. After some searching we came across a real barn find. A Honda Bol d’Or from 1982 that did not run for fifteen (15!!) years. Naturally the battery was flat, the fuel old and the carbs needed some attention, but other than that the bike was in a top-notch condition.
Especially for what we were planning to do with it!
