A few months ago, custom bike builder Bill Webb showed off his idea – a cafe fighter based on Honda’s CBR1000RR. It was gorgeous, it was different and it was hugely popular with many clamoring for a kit. And that clamoring has seen Bill Webb seek to put his kit into production for an asking price of $2,999 via Indiegogo.
Called the Huge MOTO Black, the kit includes everything needed to convert Honda’s literbike into Bill’s dream – including levers with integrated turn signals, stacked headlight, the absolutely brilliant looking solo tail with integrated brake & burn signals, bikini fairing and various hardware mounts. It’s compatible with all Fireblade’s post 2007.
The man behind all this has history with industrial design and this isn’t the first bike he’s designed. In order for this to get off the ground, Huge MOTO is after $75,000 worth of orders – or 25 kits. The kit is for any average enthusiast to build in their garage with standard tools–one that doesn’t require any welding skills or specialized equipment.
Some basic wiring skills are required – the tail requires relocation of factory components such as the fusebox and voltage regulator, connecting the turn signals and tail light, while the headlight and levers require rewiring low and high beam and connecting turn signals.
If this doesn’t go into production, Honda please take note. This bike would be a huge success. Please make something like it and hire Bill Webb.
