Ellaspede Turns Old, Ugly Honda CB250N into a Dream Bike

Take a look at an 1980 Honda CB250N: do you see anything more than a rather ugly, flat commuter bike? Would you ride it with a proud smile on your face just because it's yours? Will it turn any heads? Certainly not. Heads would turn as you crash, maybe, but the name of the game was keeping the rubber side down, right?

Well, Oz-based Ellaspede Customs seems to have a better eye. And even more than the eye, the certainly proved that they have the mind, imagination and resources to transform the old lady into an object of desire, a luxurious bike commanding silent admiration. If you thought that 250-class commuters are dull, the Ellaspede Customs 1980 Honda CB250N begs to differ.

The already black machine went even darker, with matching wheels and frame, a racing-striped tank, low-riser handlebars and infinitely-cool bar-end mirrors. Having the electrics re-worked and rearranged adds to the clean look of the bike, and relocating the battery offered an even neater look.

Add in the sleek mini front fender, the redesigned rear with a kangaroo leather seat, vintage-approved wrapped exhaust lines and low headlight and there's your all-new, killer look Honda CB250N which will now turn more heads than you dreamt it ever would.
