    How about a thread that celebrates interesting (in a good way, no grotesqueries wanted) old school bikes that have been customized in an interesting way.

    Pretty open to interpretation; so how about the defining characteristic being a bike you'd be proud to own: or if that's too high a standard, at least not embarrassed to own :lol3

    Something like this CR500 tribute inspired CB500

    With some mudguards, a decent seat and classic paint job that would be OK. Maybe put a nice 4 into 2 as well :D

    Not sure how many of these were made but London Honda dealer Mocheck did a few including Italian made cast wheels which were a dealer option on the 400 Four and they also offered a Yoshimura 460cc conversion, a good looking bike called the Mocheck Harrier.
