Honda CB550 custom

Victor Sultana's custom Honda CB550
A short post today: a lovely CB550 café racer belonging to Victor Sultana of Grand Rapids in Michigan. It’s one of those bikes that’s just “right”, and it put a smile on my dial as soon as I saw it.

It’s a 1975 CB550, fully restored, and with no engine mods other than the 4-into-1 blacked out exhaust. The restoration and paint was done by a small workshop called Classic Snowmobile Repair in Fennville, Michigan.

The solo seat is a custom fabricated fiberglass item by CB specialist Benjie’s Cafe Racers, complete with integrated tail light. And the rearsets, mirrors, linkages and turn signals are from Dime City Cycles.

Just lovely, don’t you think?
