Dime City Cycles “Sixty Five” Honda CB450 Rigid Bobber Interpretation

Dime Citys "Sixty Five" Honda CB450 Rigid Bobber Interpritation

Welcome to the Dime City Cycles “Sixty Five” custom Honda bobber a simple, minimalist & cleaned lined stunning custom motorcycle. Dime City’s thinking behind this project was “an interpretation of what a factory rigid Honda 450 would look like if Soichiro Honda had a taste for the wilder side of life. Simple, clean lines and a well thought out minimalist approach create a unique bike with a level of quality and engineering equal to those rolling off the factory floor in the 60’s.”

All the fabrication was done in-house with the CB450 donor bike being completely stripped down to the bare frame and each part assesed to see what could be slavaged and what they will need to hand fabricate. They built it back up with many custom parts being added alone the way, I love the exhaust pipes almost looking like they should belong on an automatic machine gun and the whole look is set off with the use of vintage 18″ and 19″ Firestons and a gorgeous matt black paint job. With a completley rebuilt engine and a few mods along the way Dime City have produced one stunning motorcycle.

The Bobber was the first of the custom motorcycle’s to come along all hand built and usually the builders woiuld be part of bike clubs and came along before the likes of Choppers and Cafe Racers. It all started in the 1940’s and 50’s when returning solders from WW II started to customise cheap ex-military motorcycles. After spending time in Europe they had seen faster, lighter motorcycles and set about customising, lightening and chopping the old bikes down and creating totally unique styles.
