BGM Cafe Racers’ Honda CB750 “RC42”

Tucked away in the medieval English town of Stratford-upon-Avon is BGM Café Racers, which built this 1992 Honda CB750 for a client who wanted a classic, cost-effective café racer. The client insisted that the “RC42” have velocity stacks hung from its four carburetors and a one-off monocoque body that made use of the original fuel tank, but otherwise he left it up to BGM. The “RC42” has too many wonderful touches, from the hydraulic clutch conversion to the one-off top yoke with integrated Motogadget digital gauge, but the best part of the bike has to be the sci-fi DIY taillight. “The plan was to use off-the-shelf taillights, but we couldn’t find anything that suited the bike, so we made one from scratch … it was all handmade in the shop, edge lit, with LED lights, crafted by BGM.”

Great Job guys! Awesome bike. The attention to detail is amazing, love the BGM logo’s placed subtlety on around the motorcycle too.
