Dan Aspel, 26 December 2010 08:00

Cobra USA's "Special Projects Division" have taken two Honda RS750s and decided to completely change their look.   The first has become a CL77 Scrambler 305 look-a-like, while the second is patterned after a 1980s flat-track bike. Cobra claim the transition was easy: "amazingly, there was no major surgery involved in turning the first bike from a 2010-model RS750 into a 1960s-style ...

Dan Aspel, 18 October 2010 13:56

This Ferrari F1-themed trike was originally a Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa.
