1978 Honda CB550 Cafe Racer

I’ve written about the Benjie’s Cafe Racer shop a couple of times before, so it’s nice to see a bike using BCR parts floating around on the web. This particular machine is up for auction on eBay.

The CB550 is quite a nice bike as is. But this has been built up to really look the part of a cafe racer. The BCR tank and seat are what really make this bike shine. It does need two things, though: move the bars to a better position (they appear to be mounted upside-down (do clubmans come flat or with a small amount of downward angle?) and then rotated upwards), and put some rear-sets on that thing. Then this would be a top-notch cafe racer…
