Honda GP250R Cafe Racer by Darrell Schneider Restorations [Photo Gallery]
While most other bike customizers are trying to work on the existing designs, Darrell Schneider is one of the few who try to remaster shapes and turn everything the way he feels like, in complete disregard of the initial construction. With absolutely every part of the bodywork painstakinlgy manufactured by hand, creating a bike with an amazing personality was simply to be expected.
RaceTech and Durelle Racing suspensions were fitted, with brake tech rotors and Honda CBR600 calipers loaded on custom mounts, while the Talon hubs replaced the old ones inside the Sun rims. A Darrel-modified Arrow silencer sits under the seat and custom subframe, while the strikingly bold paint job of the DSR GP250R Cafe Racer evokes the vivid racing color-schemes of yore.
While impossible to trace back to the original CRF250R, Darrel Schneider's bike is indeed one machine both youngsters and old-timers would definitely ride like the stole it.
