Black Mamba

The Sleek 1973 Honda CB550

For a cafe racer, Hookie’s Black Mamba has a powerful core. After reducing the frame of a 1973 Honda CB550 and lowering the front suspension by half an inch, the team added in a completely rebuilt motor to kick it up a gear. It pairs well with the sleek, clean exterior in a monochrome black—aggressive, fast, and clean—this bike talks the talk.
