This ’60s-Inspired Honda CBR 600 F Pays Homage To The Isle Of Man

For a particular 62-year-old gearhead residing in Liverpool, visiting the Isle of Man TT is a dream trip, but he couldn’t make the voyage on just any old sports bike. Take a look at the 2001 Honda CBR 600 F TT by North East Custom and you’ll find a handsomely reimagined two-wheeler with the power and failsafe handling to help the gentlemen make his dream a reality.

Brothers Diego and Riccardo Coppiello from North East Custom took inspiration from ‘60s Honda RC racers to build this beauty. They made the fairing with real aluminum and utilized traditional metal shaping methods for a robust ride and placed a Yamaha FZR headlight on the front to lead the way. It has a new subframe, suede seat with gel layer underneath, and a tail unit which contains some of the electrical systems — namely the fuse box and relays. It also has an exhaust system from Akrapovič, which was modified to flow better with the aesthetic of the sports bike. We’re sure it turned more than a few heads at the Isle of Man.
