Return of the Cafe Racers - HONDA CB750 Cafe Racer

HONDA CB750 Cafe Racer

Straight from one end of Honda’s CB range to the other. Yesterday it was a CB125 Cafe Racer from the USA and today it’s a CB750 Cafe Racer from Spain. Unfortunately details on this bike are limited to what I managed to dig up from various blogs and a Spanish Cafe Racer forum but it’s better than nothing. The bike is a ’92 Honda CB750 sf built by a forum member who goes by the name of “Janjo” and just like the CB125 it was a first time build that happened thanks to the collaboration of a father and his son.

Janjo and his father took around 12 months to complete the ground up rebuild of the 750. Europlast low profile fibreglass bodywork replaces the factory steel and a new rear loop was fabricated to shorten the rear and keep it rigid. All of the Honda’s lighting was upgraded with lower profile components and the instruments were replaced by a single digital display. Conical filters do away with the Honda’s restrictive airbox and the four cylinders vent exhaust gases through a 4-into-2 system.

Honda’s 1992 CB750’s came with 5 spoke solid rims which certainly weren’t the most appealing of wheels out there. Janjo fabricated a set of bolt-on solid discs to conceal the spokes and painted the rims to match the bodywork, which happens to give them the appearance of old school whitewalls (thumbs up from me). Cross drilled discs and adjustable gas shocks on the rear add a few handling upgrades to the Cafe Racer; and clip ons and rear sets reposition the rider ready for a more aggressive attack on the asphalt.

While the splashes of Carbon fibre aren’t to my liking the detail on the engine and the seat make up for it. Also if you take a look at the video below I am sure that once you hear the bike in action you shouldn’t have any problem overlooking such trivial details.
