Cafe Racer Or Bobber?

Peter Bieri from the young Swiss custom shop PB33 Designs, sent me only one picture of this very unique custom 1982 Honda. I was expecting more photography before publishing, but Peter seems to have rode away…It’s a 6-cylinder bike designed such a way that it looks like the cross of a Cafe Racer with a Bobber.

He told me that it took him 3 years to fabricate most of the parts like the frame, the copper battery box, the CNC induction funnels, the exhaust system, the solo spring seat, handlebar, etc. The bike features Öhlins forks, Brembo brakes, Kineo wheels and uses the newest key-less start system technology.

    More like a Quasi Hipster almost a Bobber not a CF . But regardless of the category . Its a pretty damn nice build

    Nice looking bike….more “Bobber” than Cafe Racer but a good reuse of a Honda 6 for sure.

    A new category… the Cabobber!!!

    The cafe racer and bobster craze has officially jumped the shark.

    What happened to just being a custom motorcycle? Most of the labels have been so over-used that they really don’t mean anything anymore.

    looks like the engine is integral to the frame structure. unitized construction. tight look.

    I like it but I think I’d want something to keep my ass on the seat.

    I’d have to say that at this point in time, it’s better to discard all the bobber, cafe racer, chopper, etc labels are pretty useless. Custom bike is enough for me. The labels are so randomly applied these days that they’re meaningless.

    It’s not like there aren’t more photos on his page.
    I like that frame – kind of like a Martin frame. Used to see a few of those in the 80’s in Germany.

    It is what ever it is and I have no idea what that is but I damn well like it! I am sure there are people hard at work as I speak that are already copying it.
