Randakk’s CB1123F Cafe Racer!

Extensive “Build” Photo Album (200+ photos)

This bike was built for me by J.R. Luksik of CBX-tras with assistance from Ken Sperry, Rosey Lackey, Jr., Al Bergler, Jim Sawtell, Dennis Parrish and many others.

1st Place Winner at 2015 Detroit Autorama

CB1123F at Kershaw AHRMA Race

This bike represents my vision for a proper cafe racer. Great looks combined with race-bike performance capabilities. Inspired by my involvement in AHRMA vintage road racing – this bike has it all: handling, performance and comfort. In the hands of a skilled rider, this bike is a track day and twisty road demon.

All-out speed was not the goal. Instead, I aimed for a balanced performance combination that would deliver an engaging riding experience for a skilled rider.

I attempted to avoid going overboard on this bike, but I failed miserably! :). The main focus is on function – not fussy attention to finish details. However, I happen think it looks great…very purposeful.
