MOTOBIKE Badajoz's CB900F
By Anthony van Someren - 14 May 13
Having been inspired by Deus Ex Machina and Wrenchmonkees, Mario Salorino began his collabroation with MotoBike Badajoz building his own Honda, a CM400T. This project set him up with owner Juan de Dios and mechanic Ricard as a partnership, building more cafe/brat hybrid custom motorcycles, including this lovely CB900F, reminiscent of other Spanish customs by the likes of Cafe Racer Dreams. Having hooked up with the Juan & Ricardo and introduced them to this new custom niche, the guys were hooked and the work began. The brown & cream paint looks rich and deep, continuing the growing trend amongst Spanish builders to use simple, retro paint schemes with timeless lines that accentuate the lines of the frame and hide or expose various bike components. The usual minimalist lighting front and rear keeps it lean and simple with cat-eye indicators and mini-speedo. The guy's next project is for shop owner Juan de Dios, a Honda CB750F 82. We look forward to getting the pics. See more of the detail behind this build on the MOTOBIKE Badajoz Facebook page.
