I scanned these pictures out of one of my really old mags. Cycle (USA) magazine, November 1975. The bike was built by a Howard Blau, a practising attorney in Los Angeles, California. It was basically a styling exercise to show how a humble bike, in this case a Honda CB550/4, could be transformed into something that set it apart from every other bike. The bike was not meant to be a street-legal bike, as the absence of road-going gear indicates, and, in fact, Mr Blau kept it for some time on the hearth in his living room as a piece of sculpture. That said, the bike WAS a goer, and Cycle reported sparkiling performance from its worked-over moter and greatly reduced weight. A fine example, in my opinion, of an early naked bike and beautifully executed too. http://www.members.iinet.net.au/~vfr750/MyBikePics/500-4_3.jpg http://www.members.iinet.net.au/~vfr750/MyBikePics/500-4_4.jpg Comments??
