Usually, when we’re talking about custom rides, most of the time people assume its always about cars. However, you should know that there’s a healthy number of awesome motorbikes that also get the custom treatment. One such beauty that caught our eye is the Federal Moto Two Scoops restoration and modification. This project starts off with a rare Honda two-wheeler and the resulting machine is striking beauty to behold.
According to sources, this unique project takes 1983 Honda CX650, which saw a limited release period in the United States. Michael Muller helms this project and the resulting ride looks fantastic with its mix of peach, white, and mint paint job. There’s also splashes of chocolate brown, which adds a playful accent of colors on the grips and leather seat.
Viewing the bike from the front, you have anodized black forks taken from a 2006 Suzuki GSX-R600 as well as the brakes. Meanwhile, the rear is sourced from a 1988 Honda Shadow to complete framework. You also have a pair of Buchanan Spoke & Rim 17-inch Sun aluminum wheels with Metzeler Racetec RR tires.
To ensure that the Federal Moto Two Scoops performs as well as the original, the engine gets a thorough rework. New components help the 100-horsepower V-Twin powerplant run smoothly. Equally important are the tailor-made tail section and tank by Craig Rodsmith. Japanese switches, Koso digital speedometer, LED lights, and Motogadget electronics with Bluetooth connectivity are all on board. The result is a combination of vintage looks with modern technology that’s ready for the open road.
