CBX 1000 – Cafe Racer – Intro
The CBX 1000 Cafe Racer is a bike commissioned by a customer in Australia after reading about Taimoshan the Super Cafe Racer in an Australian motorcycle publication.
As it happened this customer had a couple of Pro-link CBX 1000’s sitting in his garage waiting for a little magic.
Above we have an early rendered sketch of the bike design, very much along the lines of the famous Honda RC 161 & 166, 6 cylinder racing machine of the factory honda race team, but in a much more brutal form, as these early RC racers were only 250cc.
The frame is a one off custom cafe racer style frame, designed especially for the 102kg, 6 cylinder engine and will in the “super cafe racer” style have the most modern up to date front suspension and monster twin disc brakes albeit mounted to 17 inch alloy wire rims, clean lines with hidden wiring and electronics and will feature an ear splitting 6 into 6 racing megaphone exhaust system for that authentic classic racer sound.
So if you want to follow this build as it progresses over then next months then tag or RSS this page for updates.
