This stunning Honda CB750 cafe racer is the result of a collaboration between Dime City Cycles and Iron & Air Magazine, it was presented to the public for the first time at the The Barber Vintage Festival last week.
From a purely detail-oriented perspective this is easily one of the most thorough builds we’ve seen in recent memory. The team at DCC peformed a full, nut and bolt rebuild on the engine, tweaked the frame, added Progressive suspension to the front and back, Keihin CR racing carburettors, a custom DCC/Cone Engineering performance tuned 4-into-1 exhaust, a Legendary Motorcycles Manx fuel tank, a Legendary Motorcycle Thruxton seat, DCC Original “Speed” handlebars, Avon Road Rider tires, paint work by Moe Colours, powder coating by Pro-fab Customs, professional polishing by Henry Canup’s Custom Metal Polishing, Nissin controls, a 7-way adjustable steering damper, 2.5″ mini gauges and quite a bit more.
The elements used in the build of this rather handsome CB750 cafe racer are all available to buy via the Dime City Cycles web-store and all the major mechanical work was done by DCC owners Jason and Herm. We’ve featured some of their 2-wheeled creations here in the past including the beautiful Honda Shadow custom dubbed “Payback”, which still gets a load of web traffic every week.
