This stealthy Honda CB450 custom looks mostly stock at first glance, but there are a dozen unique touches that make it special.
Jason Michaels is one half of Dime City Cycles, a leading light of the contemporary US cafe racer scene. Being a good son, he planned to do some light custom work on his father’s Honda Shadow VT800—creating a comfortable cruiser his Dad could pilot around town in a relaxed posture. But after a thirty-day build, the bike delivered to the house of Michaels Snr. on Christmas Day was quite the opposite.
