CB1000 Cafe Racer

Posted on September 24, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 5 comments

We were sent this CB1000 by one of our readers, Nik from Moscow. He built a lot of the bike himself. Nik hand made the clip-ons, tach cover and even the exhaust cans with titan pipes from Japan. It also has Brembo calipers, TSS shocks and a radial front master cylinder from a GSX-R1000. Unlike the popular CB550 and CB750 you don’t see many CB1000’s done cafe racer style. It actually makes a mean looking modern cafe racer and we take our helmets off to you Nik. [Unfortunately Nik crashed this bike 2 weeks after completing it. We hope it wasn’t too bad mate].

    IDK what that is but its definitely not a cb1000. engine configuration is wrong, It has a chain(should have a shaft) and it only has one shift lever (cb1000 has two, due to its ten speed trans).

  • the donor bike looks to have been a ’93-’95 honda cb1k, that engine was also used the cbr1k’s from that era – liquid cooled, dohc, hydaulic clutch, 5 spd, 998 cc’s.this cb1k looks to have aftermarket bars, clocks, rims, shocks, tailpipe, seat, rear fairing, fork gaitors, radiator shroud, headlight visor and turn signals. in stock trim it made 98hp. it looks to lack the braided steel hydro lines tho, putting a set from galfer on it would be highly recommended.
