Honda Motor Europe is featuring a number of custom machines at the Glemseck 101 in Leonberg, Germany, some crafted from the brand’s current line-up and others created from iconic machines from Honda’s past.
Among the current machines is a great-looking CB1100TR made by Honda’s Rome-based R&D design team. It made it’s official debut last year at EICMA alongside an Africa Twin Enduro Sports Concept, and was built to embody the thrill of American Flat Track racing.
For the suit-and-tie sect, there’s also a blacked-out, café-styled CB110EX created in collaboration with South Garage, out of Milan.
Another interesting build is based on the new Honda Rebel 500, given the “urban scrambler” treatment. It’s got big chunky Continental Twinduro tires, larger brake discs, high-pipe, scrambler-style dual custom exhaust, taller rear suspension, custom tail and tank, dirt ‘bars, custom seat. A real eye-catcher, to be sure.
In the classic corner, there’s the venerable CB750, given a classy overhaul by ex-MX1 motocross racer Billy Mackenzie.
There’s also a few CX500’s created by Kingston Customs, both given café treatment. The gold and cream colorway with blacked-out engine, wrapped pipes and reworked controls makes for an elegant looking machine.
And finally there’s a piece meal, barn find build brought to the table by Munich builder Black Beans. The CB250G has new carbs, muffler, updated brakes, foot rests and shock mounts. Clean and quirky.
