Honda CX500

Copenhagen based custom bike shop Wrenchmonkees has given a retro feel to the Honda CB550 which is little more than a downsized CB750. The Wrenchmonkees removed the rear frame, and built a custom exhaust system and new fenders.

A new lower tank, shortened forks, small single saddle and big fat firestones lower the bikes overall appearance and give it an aggressive stance. The team fitted a new seat unit to complement the curvier looks of the bike and painted it in a timeless metallic brown. The result is a very stylish bike from inauspicious beginnings and it took the honors in the Open class.
