If you recall our recent post about the Ducati CBX custom built by Dan Uhing of Nebraska, (or Honda CBX with Ducati additions as some of you thought was more appropriate) you may also remember the photo we had wasn’t the best. Even Dan admits the rear tire was a little soft in that image and he wanted all of you to see some nicer pics of the complete bike and sent these over for your consideration. I have to admit, it’s a pretty sweet looking combination of Japanese and Italian engineering.
Dan really likes this CBX but he showed me a spy shot of another project already underway. It’s another CBX, of course, but this time he’s sourcing parts from within the Japanese motorcycle community (at least he is, so far) with pieces from a GSX-R 1000 and a CBR 1000RR. He also mentioned the word “turbo” but that’s not a firm decision at this point.
You know, I really like the way Dan thinks. If he keeps this up, he’s going to create a run on the market for old CBXs.
