This Custom Honda Street Scrambler Pays Homage To Bud Ekins’ 1962 Baja Trip

Founded in 2014, Inglorious Motorcycles is a full-service shop that specializes in customizing pre-1980s Japanese bikes. While the majority of Inglorious’s prior builds have been of the cafe racer variety, for the shop’s latest one-off project, founder and head honcho Sam Evans opted to venture down a new path with a street scrambler build.

Based on a 1974 Honda CL360, the build was created to pay homage to motorcycling legends Bud Ekins (Steve McQueen’s longtime friend and stunt double) and Bill Robertson Jr’s now-famous 1962 trip down the Mexican Peninsula astride a pair of new CL72’s that would ultimately give way to the Baja 1000. The UK-based custom motorcycle builder has bestowed the Honda with a unique blend of stylistic elements borrowed from both vintage desert sleds and more contemporary street scramblers. This includes a grilled yellow headlight, scrambler-style saddle, upswept subframe, chopped fenders, LED indicators, a sub-seat electronics tray, and a beautiful set of heavily-polished single high-pipes adorned in a vented heat shield and exiting out the left side. Tying the build together is a set of period-correct knobbies and a super clean British racing green livery with gold pinstriping.
