Flickr find - Honda CB450 Cafe Racer

I came across this Honda CB450 Cafe Racer build while searching around on Flickr. The bike is built by a guy going by the name of Ppampadori.

His work on this bike included the fabrication of some exhaust baffles using measuring cups and a custom made fork brace.

Looking at how the bike started off you've got to admit he's turned it in to one sweet looking Cafe Racer. Who in their right mind would ride around on a bike with a seat like that!?

From the look of it, he's a keen bike builder with photos from a wide range of projects in his account including another Honda Cafe Racer ('72 CB750) and a very tasteful looking Yamaha XS650 bobber.

The XS650 wiring all runs inside the frame and connects to the electrics (hidden in a fake oil tank) via some copper tubing. An ingenious and great looking custom wiring job.
