Honda CB750 SOHC Exhaust

Up for auction on eBay right now is the clean-looking exhaust for a SOHC CB750. It appears to be vintage, and the seller claims it is a high-performance part, but no verification on this unless a reader of the blog can positively ID the pipe. It’s just under $300 with 3 days left in the auction. This would make a nice pipe on just about any cafe racer project, especially one with a blacked-out theme…

1961 Aermacchi 250 Cafe Racer

Here’s a really nicely customized 1961 Aermacchi 250cc bike that has been fully cafe racerized. Cool, one-off details abound. My favorite touches are the widened fuel tank with the fuel gauge placed in the side, and the pretty clean custom rear-sets. Overall, this is a beautiful bike.
