Build another resto-mod with similar suspension upgrades, but take it to the next level with more details and a somewhat different look.
A few years ago I built my first resto-mod, a blue CB1100F with similar suspension and engine upgrades. Since Honda made the 1100F for only one year and in only two colors, red and blue, I thought it would only make sense to build a red one as well. When the right deal came along for a basket case, it was time to get going.
I took a relatively modest handling bike and transformed it into one that handles more like the bikes being built today.
The overall look of the bike and how everything flows together. I love the way the paint came out and think it’s the most beautiful bike I’ve ever built or restored.
Many people think it’s brand new. Others who know more about motorcycles have said that it looks like a bike that Honda should have built. I’ve often heard others say that the suspension mods look like they were meant to be on that bike from day one.
