1976 Honda CB550 by MotoHangar

MotoHangar's preferable customization material is Japanese motorcycles. Just go to the bikes gallery on their website and you will find quite a lot amazingly rebuilt Hondas, Yamahas and Suzuki motorcycles. Those are all one-off bikes - cafe, brat, sport etc, with different stories but lots of common features incorporated in their designs. So, after previous MH's Honda CB550 I introduce you one of the latest guy's build - Jonny's CB550-S.

The resemblance of these two bikes is more than obvious - not only are they the same models, but also these two builds have quite a few similar bodywork features. Both of them have no fenders, both were treated to the seats of the same flat cafe style and overall shapes look quite alike. However let's not forget that MotoHangar team make each motorcycle unique, as every bike builder's trying to do, and this CB550 isn't an exception.
The bike is rolling on the 19" and 16" wheels. The  rear one was reworked: the guys re-laced it leaving the original hub and replacing the old rim with the smaller one to outfit it later with the lumpy Avon tire.

The bike's front end comes with Tarozzi clip-ons and reworked traktor headlight, adapted to fit. The one-off battery box is hiding between two metal mesh side covers along with the ignition and the key switch. Also for this build MH chose Yoshimura style ceramic coated exhaust system.

Additional attention should be paid to the colors: metal, black with some blue accents made the overall look really special.

As always, the team has done a great job. Find Jonny's Honda CB550 here.
