bikers have been wearing plaid, beards and tattoos since the late 60s early 70s... it's not new, it's not hipsters. that said, I got a lot of looks on my bike in "proper" dainese D1 gear head to toe...

as for that bike handling the power... it does, they road it at Texas speedway - you may not be aware of who Revival Cycles is... but you should check them out, they do restorations too.. the CBX is a museum piece but they refuse to have something that doesn't also function - so it was engineered to really ride and work

Museum piece you say? From the article;

This is no museum queen!

Then on the next line;

Quote
The Six can exclusively be seen at the Haas Moto Museum in Dallas, Texas between now and April 2019, when the intention is to show it off just once at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas, over MotoGP weeken

So it's a museum piece but it isn't. As Chicken said, the thing still looks shitty and dangerous, not that I have a problem with that. I think it's great.

I love the engineering in that hub centre steer, but the bike is not my cup of tea.

I am by no means defending that "cbx" you can see from their Revival Dayly" they refuse to call it a CBX, many times saying "it's NOT a cbx"

I think it's ugly and I hate it - but it does function. There was a lot of engineering into making sure that it does. No it won't keep up with most other bikes in spirited riding, but that's not what it's for.

that said I am building my bike to beat other bikes - specifically my friends 900 and 750s

the look I have achieved from my build is a result of it's function - and I am super stoked about that - I have always wanted it to look "purpose built" not "pretty built" - to me, THAT is what a Cafe Racer is

I like a lot of Revival bikes but not this one and nothing against plaid shirts or tattoos :)

and nothing against Hipsters either, if I did not make that clear.

I agree, there is a lot of engineering and skill that went into this bike and these guys do some great work, I just think this one is a turd but it serves it's purpose, it catches your eye and they created what they wanted to create.

I think absolutely nothing has changed in the 100 years or so of people customizing their motorcycles.  There have always been amateurs, hacks, people with bad taste...
The thing that HAS changed is we all have cameras to take pictures of our crap so you get to see the full spectrum of stuff out there.

Chop them up.
That's not to mention the fact that it's the owners choice. If I want to save up my money and buy a Ferrari, only to hack it up, spray bomb it and swap the motor for a small block Chevy, who cares, does it affect you? No. You could've spent your money, bought the Ferrari and saved it. Only difference is, a vintage jap bike isn't a Ferrari. Not trying to be a jerk, but I dont know where people get off thinking they have any reason or power to tell people what they should or shouldn't do with their own stuff. Especially if it's not someone asking for advice. Wanna resto and preserve old bikes, do it, if you don't, hack them. You wanna let it rot in your yard, cool, it's YOUR BIKE.

^---- These.
If your name is on the title, build it however you want. You're the only one that needs to be happy with it.
Because if you're building it to make the masses happy, you've missed the point of building one.

And for those who wish to stand on soapboxes...
