Can’t believe we still haven’t upload the final product of the Honda s90 cafe racer in this blog. Sorry. So here it is… the much awaited 1960s Honda s90 customized to a cafe racer style.
The bike was bought from a friend’s friend where it has been parked in a shop since forever. We are quite lucky as the previous owner maintained and took good care of the bike, although it just sits there.
The bike was planned to be displayed in conjunction with Art of Speed Malaysia, our local event here in Malaysia where it celebrates art in all automotive culture.
There’s a lot of thought and ideas were thrown into building this bike. Yes, it might be small and look simple, but the more simple the design is, the more detail it needs to be. We decided that the tank should be remained; quite a unique shape it is. the seat cowl has been constructed using fiber, sitting on a custom bracket that is attached to the original frame. The clubman handlebar were modified from the original handlebar and wrapped with leather handle grip. We can’t fit a universal clubman handlebar as the width of the fork is quite small. The rear set have been customized from an after market rearset where the riding position is according to the new owner of this bike.
New powder coated rims and tires were fitted in this bike. The front and rear fenders were left behind; I know, I know… its not practical… but we just wanted to be badass 😛 So we maintained the original black colour of this Honda s90, makes it extra badass.haha. The original gauge were given a special touch where it have been tinted with red tint.
