“When the call-out for the competition came, I found out a little late,” said Nick after the show. “But a friend offered me a 1979 Honda CB250T to work with. It was basically a frame and wheels (and a few cobwebs). I had 55 days to build it, but my vision for the bike didn’t take long to form. I’d had a few ideas floating around for a long time—I wanted it to be a nod to Japanese customization, but at the same time, I didn’t want it to be like any bike I’d seen before.” Nick chopped the back of Honda Cb250T Much Much Go, 1979 Honda, Cars Motorcycles, Custom Building, Custom Motorcycles, Custom Bike, Honda Motorcycles, Motorcycles Bicycles, Cafe Racers
With a population of over 1.3 billion, there are bound to be some interesting custom motorcycles being built in China. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see most of them. This Honda CB125 custom has come to light by accident, via the motorcycle historian Paul d’Orléans. And it’s an absolute cracker. It was built by photographer Valen Zhou of Chengdu and he’s called it ‘Monstub’—a mix of monster and cub—“because it looks weird and has a small engine.”
The Super Motor Company sells a remake of the Honda Super Cub in Europe. But this machine, nicknamed ‘Salt Shaker’, is no city runabout. It’s packing a heavily breathed-upon 150cc Yinxiang motor, plus racing wheels and tires, and a bespoke frame. Would you ride it?
