If you love old-school motorcycles (like yours truly) and you have $7,000 to spend, you can opt out for a custom build 1975 Honda CB 550.
This beautiful bike was “created” by Seaweed and Gravel, located in Southern California and built by Brady Young, (who previously worked for “Ugly Motorbikes”).
But hey, this Honda is not an ugly bike, by all means! The inspiration for this bike’s design was spawned from an old motorcycle of Brady’s, which was made of spare parts in his weekends.
[adsense300gray]The custom-made Honda CB 550 was born with simplicity in mind. Its design is nice, clean cut, almost minimalistic. Yet, it has an aggressive look and it combines elements from a cafe racer and the brat style palettes; in the same time, it still preserve its classic lines, it’s still a Honda CB 550, no doubt about that.
While the initial Honda was a kick cold-starter, the new-improved version comes with kick and electric start, thanks to the guys from Antigravity Batteries.
In terms of design, even if the bike is an “all black”, it incorporates some nice touches, like matte, satin and gloss finishes, in order to make it more appealing to the eye. Because, as “they say”, the beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
