It all started with a Virago 250 that we wanted to take from ugly duckling to beautiful Cafe Racer.
Tezza's 1975 CB250G Cafe Racer
This bike is an outstanding example of a rare and appreciating Japanese classic. The bike was a lucky barn find that has been sitting in my shed for the past 5 years and finally throughout covid19 lockdowns I have had the time to restore and add some Cafe Racer Style.
An incredible amount of work has gone into customising this classic Honda. It has been transformed a forgotten project tucked away in the back of a Manly shed, to a sleek and stylish cafe racer. True to its 1982 heritage this Cafe Racer looks just like it did in it's heyday, but freshened up with some modern cafe racer style.
This bike was a previous owners project gone wrong. The entire wiring loom needed replacement and in a bike of this age finding the correct wiring layout was a struggle. The style of the bike lended itself to a more Brat style of Café Racer. It would be our first attempt at this raw style.
Sean had purchased a brand new Sol Invictus Mercury but wanted something a little different to normal. The Matt black was all good for the colour but there were some styling changes needed to get that scrambler look that he had had his heart set on.
