While the majority of custom motorcycle shops solely-focus on bespoke bikes, other operations boast more elaborate and diverse operations, with shops like Revival Cycles and Deus Ex Machina offering clothing and gear lines, amongst a myriad of other endeavors. Another one of these shops is BE UNIQUE, a French outfit founded in 2015 with a full apparel line, a customs shop in Bordeaux, and a full showroom in Pessac.

BE UNQIUE’s latest build uses a 1980 Honda CX500 donor, though the longitudinal V-Twin-powered scoot has undergone an extensive transformation. The suspension was upgraded via a mono-shock conversion and inverted forks off a GSX-R750 with red-anodized uppers. The half-liter OHV Honda also wears a tracker-style front number plate, a tank off a vintage Yamaha DT, and yellow auxiliary lights with painted shells, matching the tank and number plate that are now tacked to the build’s new crash bars. There’s also pod-filters and a bespoke exhaust system culminating in cans mounted under the swing-arm pivot. The one-off Japanese motorcycle now sees its rider straddling an aggressive and modern take on a perched bobber seat, with a with a four-piece geometric saddle with diamond stitching.
