Painting something pink and saying it’s for the ladies is an old cliche, but cliches usually have an element of truth, and this one, depending on the woman, may be true or terribly wrong. The builder of this bike took a fairly low mileage, Honda CB400A, dressed it in cafe racer body work and then gave it a nicely done white and pink metal flake, two tone paint job. He carried the glitter work over to the wheels, too, and added some decorative touches around the gauge cluster and elsewhere. Subtle, it’s not. The question is, does it work?
This bike, a Hondamatic, even does away with the need for shifting, another plus for the women, … or is that just another stereotype, like the color pink? I know we have a lot of women visiting The Kneeslider on a regular basis, so what do you say, ladies?
I’m thinking, with the right woman, this might really hit the mark, and with others, it may have the opposite effect. I’ve never been able to figure out women, so I have no opinion.
This Honda is for sale on eBay and the seller will paint your helmet to match. Opinions?
