It's not often that rust is a highlight of a bike build. But this CB750F2 from Holland is not quite what it seems. Outsiders Motorcycles have fitted a Honda Transalp front-end, custom Bitubo shocks and a CB550 swing-arm. (And just check out the welding on that exhaust system.) The 'rust' comes from layers of sanded-down paint topped with metal shavings and epoxy, and treated with acids. It's now clear-coated for protection, and a stark contrast to the fine engineering elsewhere on the build.

The CB77 Super Hawk is an icon. It's the bike that launched Honda in the USA, and inspired Robert M. Pirsig to write Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Not many builders would mess with the lines of the CB77. But industrial designer Ian Duffy is not your average bike builder. This is 'Thunderhawk,' a dark and stealthy custom that swaps chrome and curves for monochrome finishes and sharp angles. Read more at www.bikeexif.com/...

    Whoa

Some custom motorcycle builders like to make old motorcycles look new again. Others put a vintage spin on modern machinery. Spain’s Macco Motors have gone for the vintage approach with this CB750, and it works a treat. You’d never guess at first glance, but it’s actually a 2002 Honda—the model better known as the Nighthawk 750.
