Mark Guevara knows he is the fifth owner of this 1975 Honda CB750, which he calls a “barn find”. The quotation marks are there because Guevara said they don’t have any barns in the Philippines. Guevara, a property manager for his family’s real estate business, also makes and designs bamboo and carbon fiber longboard skateboards for his company, Contach Longboards. This was his first stab at building a custom motorcycle...

Kevin Taveras knew his friend was never going to finish the basket case project he hadn’t even started, so he told him to hit him up when he was tired of tripping over the boxes and frames woefully aging in the garage. A scant year later, Taveras traded three greenbacks for the pile of potential and loaded up the engine, frames (one was a roller), the many boxes of parts, and headed for his home turf...

Giancarlo Sulmonte’s parents didn’t really want him riding on the road so, like any good teenager would, he manipulated the situation. He bought a dirt bike and then promptly converted it into a street racer. His 1973 Yamaha DT250 was wasting away in his friend’s dad’s garage. Sulmonte, then 19, was working on a car project at the time. He thought it was a pretty cool bike but didn’t think about it for a few months. One day he got up the nerve to call his friend’s dad and offer $300. The man countered with $150 (why can’t this happen to all of us?) and Sulmonte took it home...

On June 18, 2016, Carlos Colonia officially went in over his head. After a bad break up he was looking for something to keep himself occupied and he thought a motorcycle rebuild project was a good idea. He spent four weeks scouring Craigslist for the right bike and the same listing kept coming up over and over: A 1977 BMW R100 for $500 (OBO). It was a rolling chassis and a box filled with engine parts...

Growing up, Kevin Wilbeck always had motorcycles – a Honda 100, a CB350 and a CB550 in college. He always wanted a 750 Super Sport but didn’t get it until a few years ago when he re-entered motorcycling after noticing how big the vintage motorcycle scene was getting in Des Moines, Iowa. He bought a 1978 Honda 750 Super Sport for $1400 with 6100 miles..

For $200, Dayton, Ohio’s Kyle Nearing scored this 1975 Honda CB550, which had been rotting in a Midwestern yard for untold years. The motor had been removed but the price was right. At first, Nearing, whose only other bike has been a 2007 Yamaha R6, didn’t completely tear down the CB550. Instead, he got it running and installed new handlebars and an exhaust and rode it in the rough shape it was...

Durant, Oklahoma’s Ron Erickson isn’t much of a brand guy. He doesn’t bleed red for Honda and hasn’t sold his soul to Harley-Davidson. He started out at five years old with a 3.5 horsepower Briggs & Stratton minibike from Sears and has owned 20 motorcycles since, including seven Harleys, four BMWs, three Triumphs, three Hondas, one Yamaha, a Moto Guzzi, a Ducati and now a Suzuki...
