Taimoshan Cycle Works has now moved from Cardiff in the UK , to Sydney Australia and is in the process of partnering with an industry leading engine performance builder and Honda specialist.
We expect to have facilities available in the early New Year to take on new builds, possibly earlier if the bikes are Honda CBX 1000, CB750 DOHC, CB750 SOHC
We will are also developing a range of performance production parts for the above Honda, so keep you eye out in the new year.
We will also be putting together some bike and engine build packages where we will arrange all the necessary shipping and return to most countries to give customers in other countries access to our new products and services.

Bare Metal Triumph Bonneville T140es
This one has been sitting on the shelf waiting for a break in the work load to start building.
We start with a 1982 Triumph Bonneville T140es OIF with matching numbers.
The plan is to build a cafe racer with a little of the style of Shinya Kimura, ie full bare metal everything and this is the first step, stripping off all the paint, with a wire wheel. It has to be a wire wheel as the process, part polishes the metal of the frame to the required effect.
As you can see we have modified the frame, adding a cross tube in the front down tubes and created a box section between the seat frame rails to house the electronics and finally we detabbed the frame of all unnecessary brackets. The final thing … Read More »
1981 Honda CB750 Brat Racer (The Green One)
This is the second of the pair of Honda CB750 Brat racers destined for Dubai, again the design would be heavily influenced by the work of the Wrenchmonkees of Denmark and CRD in Spain.
This time around the chosen donor bike was a 1981 Honda CB750 FB .
The design of this bike was to be black, black and some more black with a splash of colour and WOW did that work for this bike!
Specs: 1981 Honda CB750 FB

Basically we chopped the tail off, re-positioned the seat frame rail, braced the back of the frame hoop and raised the back of the tank by about 2.5inches to straighten out the lines of the bike from commuter/cruiser to racer. The frame was completely stripped, … Read More »
1980 Honda CB750 Brat Racer ( The Brown One)
It is not often you get the chance to build 2 similar bikes side by side for essentially the same customer, but that is what happened and this is one of the pair to are destined for Dubai in the United Arab Emerites. The project started out with a brief and a couple of couple photos the style of bike the customer wanted. The design would be heavily influenced by the work of the Wrenchmonkees of Denmark and CRD in Spain.
As the customer was in another country the brief also included sourcing the donor bike on which to build. The bike chosen was a 1980 Honda CB750 FA in very good condition. It is my belief that it is really a false economy to by a “junker” as the base … Read More »
