Rick Wagoner's 1976 Honda CB200

"I purchased the bike in July 2017 for $200 the same month we found out we were having our first child. Bike was busted, engine locked up, and covered in dirt and clay. I decided for my second café racer build I’d throw my aircraft composite knowledge at it and here we are - the Carbon Café."

"I built the seat pan from a scrap pylon panel of a Cessna Citation XL. Built up the fairing with structural foam and covered in carbon fiber. Fabricated the tank pad and gauge panel from carbon fiber and overlayed the front fender, points and tach covers in carbon fiber."

"The rest was just a simple ground up restoration. Not the fastest bike I’ve ever ridden but quite possibly the most fun. Can’t wait for the kid to be old enough to build a bike with me. Thanks to Dime City Cycles for the parts and great service."

What's with the speedo being turned counter-clockwise??? Just wondering,as that pic struck me a bit odd!?! Lol. Nice build!!! Thanks.

Probably the cables won’t clearance the headlight bucket. Had the same issue with my cb350F

Yup,that's certainly always a possibility!?!? I wish this blog had more detailed pics of it to see if that was the case? However,it quite possibly could be a simple matter of personal "taste"!?!? Who knows? Maybe the rider likes to have his gauges unidirectional!?!? Thanks Nicholas! :)

Drew I rotated both gauges. Picture is kinda off center so it looks like the speedo is turned more. I did it for two reasons, cable routing and I found it aesthetically pleasing. Sometimes canted looks better. Thanks

Understood Rick!!! Thanks for answering that for me too!!! It's good to hear it,straight from the person who put it together!!! And yup,I definitely understand the need to reroute a cable or two,and then figure out......."Hey,I actually LIKE how that looks too!!! " More power to ya My Friend!!! :)

Nice job Rick, you should be proud. Great attention to detail. Bike doesn't have to be fast to be fun.

Good looking bike - and a Cessna Citation as a parts machine!
Outstanding!
