This Eye-Catching Custom CB550 Cafe Racer Motorcycle Could Be Yours

It’s often said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and when it comes to custom motorcycles, this proves especially true. For you see, even when someone cobbles together a build, runs out of steam, and leaves the bike unfinished, most of the time, it can still be saved (provided that it’s placed in the right hands).

Just take this 1977 Honda CB550 by Polish-based Cardsharper Customs, for instance. Having entered the shop as an amateurish effort, it’s since been transformed into this sweet café racer they’re calling ‘Friday.’ Penned in collaboration with client and designer Michał Ćwiek, it features all the right elements you’d expect of such a custom, including an empty rear triangle, a hooped subframe, and a set of clip-ons to lower the riding position. But this isn’t some mere aesthetic overhaul; it’s built to perform. As such, it’s been given the forks and brakes from a Suzuki GSX-R, a new set of rear shocks, as well as a carb rejet complete with some foam air intakes and a 4-into-1 exhaust. Rounded out by some LED lightning, a complete part refurbishment, and some breathtaking paint, this is one you won’t want to miss. Make it yours for $18,590.
