CBX1000 Cafe Racer build - just finished
« on: Nov 17, 2013, 03:40:18 »
Hey All...

Here are some pics of my recently finished CBX1000 Cafe Racer in custom frame, custom everything... actually the only thing left from the Donor bike is the engine and that has just been removed again to have a couple of upgrades... to take it out to 1425cc and about 165hp at the ground. It should be back on the road after xmas.

Hope you like it !

I really enjoy getting the opportunity to see CBX1000s.  They are nothing less than over the top, mind blowing to me.  I would never ever own anything w more than 2 carbs myself, I dont even want to imagine the nightmare 6 must be.
And yours is simply amazing.

If you did the work please create a build thread and post ALL the process pics you got.
If someone else did the work, congrats on your purchase, you bought a nice looking machine.

So welcome and thanks for sharing the pic of a cool looking bike.

Thanks for the compliments, as yes I built it myself.

I designed the core frame layout then worked with my frame builder to get the frame I wanted.

All the rest of the bike is my own work.

I have a stack of photos that I will put together in the next few days when i get some time.

Thanks again
John

The cbx1000 is my favourite, "if only I had the money" bike of all time! Congrats! Yours looks amazing.
