From its introduction in 1968 throughout the ’70s and into the ’80s, the CB750 saw constant development….

Honda CX500 by Ton-up Garage

The Honda CX500 is a motorcycle that’s seen a surge in popularity over the past few years, which is surprising really as it wasn’t a particularly popular model when it was released in 1978. Honda had been on a roll throughout the late-60s and 70s, the release of the CB750 and GL1000 had revolutionised their…

Honda CB750 by Vibrazioni Art Design

The Honda CB750 is a motorcycle we’ve seen customised in just about every way you can imagine, from the plethora of cafe racers to the less common bobbers, choppers and even a scrambler or two.

Honda CB360 by Purebreed Cycles

The Honda CB360 is a motorcycle that I’d probably recommend above all others as a first bike – it’s light, nimble, reliable and it does a valiant job of keeping up with the big boys when you want to take it out canyon carving (after you’ve taken an MSF safety course, obviously). Honda introduced the…

Honda CB550F SuperSport

The Honda CB550F SuperSport is a motorcycle that’s lived in the shadow of its larger sibling, the CB750F, for the past 40 years.

Some of you may remember EVE, it’s a custom motorcycle we featured a few months ago when the first renderings were released by the team at Bandit 9 motorcycles.

Honda CM400 by Junior Burrell

Custom motorcycles that have hand built fairings always draw a little extra attention from me, I love naked bikes and classic cafe racers but there’s something genuinely captivating about a sheet of metal that’s been hammered into a landscape of curves designed to bend the wind around itself. The faired bike you see here is…
