OK, this is pretty neat, a new Honda CB1100 modified to look like a CB750 using a conversion kit from Whitehouse of Japan. Whitehouse, you may remember, is the company that built the Dragon King custom from a Honda Valkyrie. They seem to have a knack for creating some pretty impressive customs and this CB1100 conversion kit, or what they call the CB1100 FOUR “K10,” looks like a very well engineered set up.
I found out about this kit when I saw this bike for sale. The seller says he has $10k in the new bike plus another $12k in parts.
K10 Kit includes: Tank, side covers, seat, Side light covers, front fender, blinkers, fork bellows, headlight bucket, tail light, chrome metal gauge cups, chrome grab bar.
Other parts: Over brand swing-arm #7, Moriwaki full Ti dual exhaust, Ohlins shocks with chrome springs, HyperPro front springs, Power Commander V, K&N filter. Honda service manual.
It's also 53 pounds lighter than stock when you're done swapping parts. Looking at the Whitehouse Motorcycles website, there seems to be a lot of variations to how the finished product can look.
I really like this, new bike reliability and performance with retro looks. It reminds me of some car conversions where they put a vintage body on a much newer under carriage. Why didn't Honda do this in the first place?
