Earlier this year Honda challenged all their UK dealers to build custom versions of the CB650F. As expected, some outstanding bikes were created.

And in the end a glow-in-the-dark Honda CB650F built by P&H Motorcycles took top honours in the custom competition, beating a tribute Marco Simoncelli and Spider-Man-inspired bike.

What looks like a fairly bog standard paint scheme in the day is transformed in the dark, as the lightning bolts glow a b0right green.


The glow-in-the-dark bike finished ahead of the second-placed effort from Padgetts Motorcycles. Padgetts created a race-ready bike, complete with Arrow exhaust system, Brembo brakes and their iconic multi-coloured paint scheme.

Maidstone Honda took third place with their rat rod-inspired CB650F, which is completely bereft of a tail unit.

The team at Maidstone Honda completely changed the front of the bike, too. Replacing the standard headlight with a more traditional round unit.

Fourth place went to the Marco Simoncelli tribute bike from Doble Motorcycles. 

The last finalist in the competition was the eye-catching Spider-Man CB650 built by North West Honda Blackpool. The bike includes a Spider-Man paint scheme, and the headlights are nestled in the mouth of Spider-Man villain Venom.
