Vietnamese Customizer Shows Real Deal Cafe-Racer [Photo Gallery]
text size: A- A+
The donor bike is an 1981 Honda CB750F, by all means of the of the bike customizer favor quite a lot as a starting point. With the engine receiving a complete overhauling to manufacturer specs, this CB is once more ready to prowl the street: a 4-cylinder array of 736cc total displacement and delivering 68 HP, mated to a stock 5-speed tranny, all oil-cooled. The airbox was tossed and conical air filters were obviously installed for a better intake flow.
The front end was replaced by a GSX USD fork with Tokico calipers, while the classic retro headlight gave way to a very cool bi-Xenon diagonally-stacked array with... wait for it... angel eyes! How cool is such a modern approach to an old-school cafe-racer? Great idea!
The chassis got some architecture modifications to accommodate the custom sheet metal hand-made tank and the new classic tuck and roll seat. The rear disc brake sports a Honda caliper. Add in the bar-end mirrors, lowered clip-ons, and a careful paint job to match the retro-modern looks combination and there you have it, the perfect proof that Vietnam can cafe-race just as good as anybody else.
Thanks Khoa Nguyen Xuan for the tip.
