Cowboy’s Choppers Turns Honda’s CB1100 Into A Stylish Retro Scrambler

As one of, if not the most popular platforms for motorcycle customization, Honda’s illustrious CB range — both modern and retro — has been turned into all manner of one-off two-wheeled creations, so it’s extremely seldom that we come across a CB build that genuinely brings something novel to the table, yet that’s exactly what we’ve got here with Cowboy’s Choppers’ latest work: a 2015 Honda CB1100 that’s been transformed into a retro-style scrambler with a bit of an ISDT/ISDE flare.

Alex Gao — head honcho of the Taipei-based shop — started by giving the Honda a custom subframe and leather saddle before moving on to complete the build’s handmade tank, side-covers, and fore and aft fenders — a brace-style item in front and a chopped rear scrambler fender in the back. The stock headlight’s been replaced with a one-off vertical unit with a bespoke grill modeled after the kanji character for “eye” (目). There’s also custom rear-sets and brackets, vintage-style levers, a shortened front-end, Shinko knobbies, pod filters, and a beautiful high-mount scrambler-style, polished dual-pipe exhaust setup. Finishing off the build — which took home the “Cool Pick” award at the latest New Order Chopper Show in Kobe — is a creme-colored livery accented by black pinstriping.
