Bob's Complete Cafe Racer

Back in April, we introduced you to a little Honda CB750 that our President here at Dennis Kirk, Bob Behan, was converting into a cafe racer. (Click here to refresh your memory!) He’s worked on it for months, designing, fabricating, assembling… and the bike is now complete, so we are back to show you photos of his finished build! We have to say, he did a fantastic job, and all for just $2,500. (But we might be a little biased.) :) You can weigh in at the end of this post and let us know what you think in the comments. Here’s the result of Bob’s labor of love:

She’s sure come a long way since this photo was taken:

So, what do you think of Bob’s new cafe racer?


Ryan Grassley has been documenting his trail riding in Panama for a while now. With over 100 videos presently on his channel (halfthrottle), he has been able to document some awesome adventures.

In this video we interview him about some of his experiences and learn about his future plans. Check out
