Honda motorcycles CB series is undoubtedly one of the most popular choices for cafe racer conversions. The CB became the world’s first superbike with the production of the legendary CB750 in the late sixties and during the decades that followed Honda recreated the CB in almost every conceivable displacement and engine configuration. Now in 2018 Honda have once again reimagined the CB with the announcement of the “café racer styled” CB1000R Neo Sports Cafe. So how does one even begin to choose which CB to select for their cafe racer?
For Marcos Vazquez of Spain’s Free Kustom Cycles the decision was made easy. After rolling an early nineties Honda CB500f into the Free Kustom workshop its owner gave Marcos the basic brief of converting it into a sleek cafe racer, so that’s exactly what he did.
