Yamaha XS 650 Street Tracker


To quote the old saying – a picture is worth a thousand words – I will skip the two thousand words and just give you two pictures. This bike is a beautiful blend of vintage and modern.  Words just can’t express.  More pictures and info here. Check back with HONAHA as spring weather and riding season approaches.

Here is a new cafe racer site to check out

Sorry for the prolonged vacation. I am back in action for the time being and hope to have a few new posts up soon. In the mean time, check out this site. One of our very own HONAHA readers recommended it. It is kind of hard to navigate and a little primitive, but if you dig around a little bit there are some great pictures. I hope you all enjoy, there are some real gems in here.

Wrench Monkee Club Black

What more can I say about my favorite builders at Wrench Monkees? I love everything they come out with.  Their bikes are always so clean, simple and elegant.   These are no frills works of art – the real deal.  I hope the people at Wrench Monkees build a HONAHA bike someday.  I am out of things to say other than – WOW.

New Mule XS 650 Project

Professor_Eric_015_fs
I think these are hands down the coolest street trackers built today. These bikes are a testament to the old meeting the new, a perfect blend of tradition and technology. The builders at Mule deserve a cold round of beer and a pat on the back from HONAHA for their traditional approach to modern racing machines. In case you couldn’t already tell – I love these guys. Stay tuned for more.

Harley Davidson Sportster Cafe Racer

1375988556_8dd07ff4b0

I thought it was time to post another nasty little Harley cafe racer. Here at HONAHA we are aware that HD’s aren’t considered traditional cafe bikes, but I think they have a lot of potential. This bike is very nicely done.  Notice the custom polished tank, the twin pea-shooter mufflers, and at the center – that  nasty American v-twin and a belt drive.  This is a great example of how you can take a normally bland Sportster and turn it into a really cool cafe racer. I took the liberty to find where some Harley cafe parts can be found – airtech streamlining.  Its time to step up Sportster owners.  No excuses.

Cafe Style Yamaha Headlight Brackets

497294
I thought I should take a break from highlighting all these cool finished products, and give you something that you can easily add to your own project.  These are some of the coolest headlight brackets that I have come across.  They may not be billet with engraved spider webs – but they are classic clean and still noticeably custom – exactly what we like to see at HONAHA. These are made to fit Yamaha SR 400, SR500, and XS 650.  Im sure with a little modification you could make them fit almost any 1970’s bike.  Get yours here.
