One of the best and most stylish bikes to come from the European custom shops over the last year or so, the Honda CX500 Street Tracker by Rive Gauche Kustoms in Paris, France really does set the bar high. The builders say the concept was based on a Motocross and Flat-Track combo, with an easy to ride cruising position for city riding and racing.
Taking what is not necessarily the nicest looking motorcycle the Honda CX500 RGK bought a pretty beat up 1981 bike with a whole bunch of parts missing. After finding the missing items, and losing what they didn’t need to give the bike its naked look, bike builders Julien Rouvelou and Vincent Hojanowaski got to work on their Parisian master piece.
The frame was chopped and welded, repainted in gloss black and the engine was overhauled and then painted in a beautiful off-white finish, giving it the stand out focal point that sets this custom build apart.
The gel battery was placed in a custom built box and the re-located under the seat again keeping the naked look as clean and pure as possible.
The stock Honda CX500E wheels with a 19-inch front and 18-inch rear, running on DOT tires wheels were powder coated black along with many of the other main components. The front and rear fenders were chopped to complete the street tracker look.
This is not the only amazing custom build from the Guys at ‘RGK’. Check out their Facebook page to see more.
