These machines are drawn from different corners of the custom universe
Honda Rebel and CB1100TR head to The Bike Shed 2017 – the UK’s premiere custom bike show. While the CB1100TR concept was created entirely in-house by Honda’s Rome based R&D design team, the Rebel was tuned by Dan Gold – a renowned tattoo artist.
The CB1100TR embodies the emotion of the USA flat track culture. Honda says that it was developed as the “King of Urban Flat Track Circuits” – a counterpoint to the off-road oval circuit look of the traditional flat tracker. It comes with a street-oriented design, more familiar to European customers.
The Rebel was customized by Dan Gold – a renowned UK tattoo artist – and it features the BMX and skateboard culture vibe.
The Rebel’s Project Leader – Keita Mikura – was inspired to create a new kind of machine for young riders following a visit to The Bike Shed in 2013. An essential part of his vision was ease of customization, and both rear seat and pillion foot pegs are easily removed. As such, The Bike Shed custom show is the perfect venue for a Rebel re-interpreted by one of the UK’s best-known tattoo artists.
Bike Shed London is a motorcycle exhibition like no other, celebrating the creative culture around the custom bike scene. It features over 150 unique custom bikes surrounded by art, photography, live music, bars, barista coffee, whisky, cigars, lounge space and the best bike brands, plus a barbershop and tattooists at a beautiful and unique London dockside venue.
