Lots of technically inspired, downright beautiful motorbikes rolled into CRM HQ after we announced the creation of a Bike of The Month contest, and after careful deliberations over several pints, a winner has presented itself for the month of December. 

This clean, customized DOHC Honda CB750F was built by Shawn Chase of Chase Custom Cycles. He radically re-worked the 1981 CB by chopping off the back half of the frame to accommodate a 2007 Ducati Multistrada single-sided swingarm. The modern front suspension hails from a 2010 Honda CBR1000RR superbike, while our friends at Virginia’s Cognito Moto supplied the necessary bits and bobs.

The custom dual headlight fairing was shaped by Shawn with Corey Nygard of Porkchop Garage providing the paint while t seat is upholstered with a clever combination of both  leather and waxed canvas by Roy Baird.

The bike’s owner is Paul Oandasan who added  Motogadget electronics throughout the bike while power comes courtesy an Antigravity lightweight battery and a Cycle X power arc ignition and charging system. Engine mods include a quartet of Keihin CR carbs with custom air boxes by steel Dragon performance and a reverse megaphone muffler by Cone engineering. 

Both the owner and Shawn at Chase Custom Cycles will receive a custom CRM prize package including a T-shirt back issues package, DVDs and more. If you’ve recently built a bitchin’ piece of high-performance retro cafe art, send pics to us at rockersrule@caferacermag.com and you may see it here.
