1975 Honda CB550 by Seaweed & Gravel

Based in Encinitas, California, the folks over at Seaweed & Gravel present a beautifully crafted 1975 Honda CB550. Keeping the bike’s clean, simple and minimalistic looks, the reworked model sees the addition of a brown leather seat, matte fuel tank stamped with white Honda branding, and a pair of crisp Firestone tires. Underneath the fuel tank lies a completely rebuilt engine while a lithium-ion battery from Antigravity Batteries gives the bike an electric start. The result is a sleek cafe racer we’d be more than okay with taking up and down the California coast.
