Honda CB400F Purpose Built Moto

Honda CB400F Vintage Cafe Racer

With its fresh motor, new tyres and brakes the CB400F is a real joy to ride. A small carbureted four breathing through a set of DNA pod filters with all its glorious ticks and noises. Around town the Green Honda turns heads on every corner, and once the traffic lights disappear and the roads open up getting the CB400F up past 6000 RPM brings it to life. The engine work done has given the CB400 a great amount of usable power that begs to be twisted out of the throttle. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There’s nothing better than riding a small bike fast. Check out the full build blog here: https://purposebuiltmoto.com/cb400f-vintage-cafe-racer/

Husqvarna Vitpilen Custom

Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 Build - Stock to Street Tracker Series

This time around I’ve picked up a Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 that will be the subject of the customisation. Everything is fun on this bike. However, the motorcycle seems disjointed from the way it looks and performs with how you ride it. Being laid over the bike didn't feel right. That was the catalyst of the project. I wanted it to feel like a Supermotard in disguise. The challenge? Transforming the Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 from stock to street tracker.
