At first, Nearing, whose only other bike has been a 2007 Yamaha R6, didn’t completely tear down the CB550.

Nick Dahlinger rescued his bike as much as he rebuilt it. A 1974 Honda CB360 in rough shape, it was on a sort of Craigslist tour, getting passed around from owner to owner who never really committed to making it run, roll and shine...

If you're going to combine brands, you could do a lot worse than Honda and Ducati. Jeff Gittleson of Wantagh, New York, proves just that with his race-inspired build using a Ducati 160 motor in a Honda frame, and it's clear why he's the current pick for Bike of the Month at DoTheTon.com.
