When bike outfit Thirteen And Company came across this 1981 Honda CB750 at a yard sale in Orange, CA, the seller agreed to a $100 sale price. Up until that point, it had been in storage for years and was in pretty rough shape. However all it took to get it started up was a fresh battery and a new set of plugs. That’s when Kyle Vara from Thirteen And Company knew it had potential.
The goal was to create a sleek race inspired cafe racer while adding tech accommodations such as a custom phone incorporated speedometer and navigation app along with LED taillights and a custom Yoshimura inspired exhaust system. The tail LED is completely integrated into the seat pan. The bike was lowered about 4 1/2 inches all the way around with a new 385mm shock set in the rear. It runs an air-cooled, inline four cylinder engine which Kyle kept in place. In the front, the CB also features a full motocross style master cylinder, and Biltwell grips were fitting onto the new clip ons to complete the bike’s smooth appearance.
