1975 Honda CB550 CR (Cafe Racer)

Showroom Custom 1

This CB550-based cafe racer is light, quick and a traffic-stopper. The chequered paint job by Trevor Whitty tops off the clean lines and mechanical look of this Seventies custom.

1972 Honda CB100 CR (Cafe Racer)

Showroom Custom 3

Meet Sammy the CB100. Every visitor to Mid Life Cycles is blown away by what ace builder Darren Brown has created here – a bike that’s more mascot than motorcycle, more art than machine, more Honda CR than CB… and it runs as well as it looks. We plan to build more of these, so Sammy is currently our Showpiece.
Engine: CB100E-1239103

Another “Manbike” in the making – a tough, ex-production racer GS1000 that makes a legit claim to the Wes Cooley Replica (replica) crown. With everything else that’s happening, it might take us a while to get this one through the workshop, but watch out for progress reports.
