Dream Machine Shoot

A unique concept motorbike built by Robert Parfitt in 2017/18.

This being only his second bespoke build he has managed to create this unique, power-house of a machine that combines both aggression and beauty at the same time.

As we're more geek than cool, we asked Rob to tell us a little more about his unique bike, here's what he told us....

"The bike is based on a Honda CBX750 with an engine size of 750cc and took about 5 months to build.

Rob further explains:

The biggest problem to overcome, was figuring out how to make the rear seat unit and attach it to the Honda CB750 F1 fuel tank and also make the rear light hidden behind a tinted light lens. I ran into several problems that needed to be overcome including making it in a shed with minimal equipment. 

Here's few interesting facts about the bike....

The front suspension, front wheel and brakes are from a 2005 Honda Fireblade, and the . 

the rear swing arm is custom made to get an Honda Fireblade wheel to fit. The rear sets (foot pegs) are from a Kawasaki Ninja 250, the rear suspension is of a 2007 Suzuki GSXR750, the colour of the bike is from a 2017 Nissan GT-R release colour and there are several other bits too many to list but these are the main parts that are special."

We asked Rob where he found his inspiration? "My main inspirations are from Autofabrica and Vagabund."
