The Build Film

In an effort to showcase the workmanship, craft, and passion that goes into building custom motorcycles, the agency I work for released this spectacular documentary.

We (Instrument), concepted, filmed, edited, and distributed this amazing motorcycle film. If you’re into authentic bike building, you’ll be into this. Hell, if you have a pulse, you’ll be into this.

As a bonus, we also released this interactive website to compliment the film. Check it out here Hopefully you’ll enjoy watching this as much as we did making it.

Back to the Basics – Classic Honda CB750 Cafe Racer

I wanted to get back to the basics with this post. It’s been a while since we’ve featured a classically styled CB and it doesn’t get much better than this. This bike is build to ride – notice the beautifully updated suspension and brakes. I suggest reading more about this project – check out the process at Adrenaline Junkies.

As always, stay in touch. More from HONAHA coming soon!

Ducati Dreamin’ in Portland, OR

I was in Portland last weekend and had a chance to swing by Moto Corsa, a great Ducati shop in the area.  This place was incredible!  Beautiful showroom, friendly service and an absolute feast of new, used and display only Ducatis.  Again, I had that kid in a candy shop feeling – unfortunately this candy is a little out of my price range. Either way, it was a blast and I highly reccomend stopping by if nothing else to admire the engineering efforts of the good folks at Ducati.  Check out some picture that I snapped at the shop.  After seeing those bikes, we may have to rename HONAHA – HONAHATI.
