Meet Sabbath Bob Custom’s Honda GB 250cc. As one of the owners of GB250 model once said, this bike is hard to find because once you buy her and give it a ride, you probably wouldn’t sell her. I don’t know if this is true but the one in the pictures is definitely to my taste.
There’s also another reason why you wouldn’t see this particular model on the steets very often – the bike has never been officialy exported outside of Japan. This is why GB250cc isn’t a very popular donor to work with among bike builders in many countries and I’m really glad to find a good example to show of what can be made out of this bike.
The design and all the customization was made by a Nonthaburi (Thailand) based “Sabbath Bob Custom” workshop. As they mentioned on their facebook page, the style of this build is Cafe Brat and I coudn’t agree more.
As you can see the front end was lowered by few inches giving the build some aggresive features. The handlebars were replaced with cafe clip-ons and new smaller headlight was mounted on the front. The front and rear fenders were taken off. The lumpy fuel tank reminds me of the BMW R80‘s item and the seat looks pretty comfortable.
