Benjie’s CafĂ© Racer – Black Whale

Was surfing around this morning, and I went to the Benjie’s Cafe Racer. Clicking through the site, I found this bike, and I thought it was a great example of a Honda CB750 cafe racer. The only thing missing is rear-sets. Lots of Benjie’s bikes seem to be lacking rear-sets, even though the rest of the build is so awesome.

Favorites about this bike are the paint job (love the matte black with red stripe and wheels), the tank and seat (wish I could buy that for my Sportster), and the classic cafe look he builds into all of his bikes.
