CAFE RACER NR 02

This cafe racer is build from a Honda GL500. Read all about the build.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

In the Wrench Kings bomber series we are proud to present: a Honda GL500 as it should look! She turned out even cooler than we expected and handles like an absolute dream. Absolutely everything has been done to the bike.

We hated to see her go but she was sold in two hours after publishing the first pic…

THE JOURNEY OF A CAFE RACER

The bike is completely stripped and everything on the bike is brand new. The entire bike is blacked out with high quality car paint from top to bottom. We customized the back of the frame to fit the café racer black & white seat which follows the line of the gas tank just perfectly. The frame has been stripped of all its imperfections and is as clean as can be now.

The gas tank is stripped to the bare metal and repainted in black & white with, in vintage grey, our signature striping.

We installed a CBR front fork, rim and massive brake discs to make the bike stop like no other.

And to give the bike its aggressive (but clean) look we installed clip-ons with blinkers in the handlebars and fitted the bike with new wiring from front to back. The ignition-key & light-switch are located at the right-side of the bike in its own custom made metal casing which is part of the subframe support.
