On Sunday I posted a photo of a slick CB750 bobber that I found somewhere. Somebody told me it may be a cafe racer. “Whatever, dude,” I replied and we laughed as we drank our beers. Still, he may be right. At first glance it looks like a bobber, but the foot position is a little far back and the clubman handlebars are currently all over a million cafe bikes.
Our convo got me thinking about the bike and the builder. It wasn’t really a cafe and it wasn’t really a bobber. After a little research, I found a lot more.
First, dig the sound:
I love that sound. When I owned my ’81 CB750-F SuperSport, it had a Kerker exhaust and sounded like that. The exhaust on this is very customized and very nicely done, with a tight 4-into-2 that wraps closely around the motor and ends underneath the saddle. It sounds angry. I like that, too.
It’s a nice blend of cafe and bobber. I’d paint it all black with red pinstripes. Like you didn’t know I’d like that.
Then I found this:
What a dirty little scooter, and I mean dirty. You’re going to get pebbles in your face and mud on your back when you ride this little screamer but man, you’ll look cool doing it. Also, I bet your *** stays nice and warm this winter while bopping around town with the positioning of the exhaust tips.
