Today, we are going to tell you about a project that was done by "A Bike Company" that combines traditional antique aesthetics with a contemporary twist. The Honda XL500 served as the inspiration for the ABC 500.
Niki, the chief designer of ABC, employed Hossack-styled forks and a Honda XL 500 powerplant. Most of the parts were made by him, but his friend was in charge of the CNC milling and laminating.
The wheels on this custom bike are modular and have a CNC-machined aluminum hub. He employed a split design, made of glass fiber and brass fittings, for the fuel tank. This ABC 500 took home not one but two prizes at the Quail Gathering; the first was for "Best Custom Bike," and the second was for the "Design and Style" category. How well would you rate their achievement?
