from nelspruit, south africa…comes a superbly restored honda cb550f super sport. you can just imagine Louis Nel riding his lovely Honda CB550F on some of the best biking roads in the country.

this was a failed restoration project from johannesburg and it arrived in several boxes of bits. nel had it initially restored by a mechanic, but felt it didn’t have the same oomph that his first diy resto had.

from louis nel:
the result has indeed been very pleasing and even some of the forum traditionalists are impressed with the transformation.  The allure of fabricating something yourself is absolutely amazing, and the “emotional attachment” that was missing with the commissioned restore is back in bucket loads!

i agree.
