1981 Honda CB900F



This award winning custom CB900F-based cafe racer was built in 2017 by Rob Chappell of Origin8or Customs and bought directly from Rob by me in 2019. In that time I’ve ridden it about 2500mi/4000km, done all the regular maintenance and made a number of improvements to the bike with the help of reputable local mechanics who know the bike. It’s in a turn-key state.
