The German custom bike shop, Kingston Customs has done it again with their redo of a classic Honda CX500 ($TBA). They started off by keeping the V-twin engine and getting rid of all the plastic. The engine was then treated with a thermo-sensitive coating and the exhaust wrapped with thermal tape. Custom made pieces include the bench seat, battery box, fenders, and foot brake lever. Handlebars from Fehling give that extra aggressive stance we're used to in cafe racers. [gallery royalslider="1" type="slideshow" ids="10954,10953,10952,10951,10950,10949,10948,10947"]
