Inspired by the Honda Jet, “the world’s most advanced light jet”, this CB750K may not be quite so advanced but it’s sure to raise just as many eyebrows. Built by Ramon Jimenez of El Centinela Motorcycles in Puerto Rico this is one of those builds that’ll have you scratching your head and gawking in awe all at once.

“Back in 2011 I started this build using a ’78 Honda CB750K designed to honor the first Honda Jet. The bike was found under a tree and I purchased it for $250.00, it was real junk. Full of rusted parts and a busted engine.”

“I had the cases repaired, the body was pulled apart, sandblasted and powdercoated by Luis Marquez in Ferrari Red. The wheels, spokes, hubs, engine covers, foot pegs and handlebars were coated in mirror black. The rest of the paint job was influenced by the Honda Jet and was done by Noel Ruiz at Lockario Paint. I did all the mechanic work with Luis Martinez from Honda of Puerto Rico. “

“As of today the bike has been exhibited at a few shows and has been very well received. The bike rides very well and the power is incredible for a bike like this one.”
