John Ryland of Classified Moto loves old spacecraft, so he's painted this new Honda CB750 to match. And it goes like a rocket too, with a Wiseco big bore kit, Yamaha YZF-R6R forks and Progressive Suspension shocks. 

You can see the vintage NASA influence in the quasi-white color, and the oil tank and the struts that support it. There’s even a fuel cap from a vintage Cessna airplane. We're star-struck.

Take a closer look at Adam Ewing's fantastic shots at http://www.bikeexif.com/honda-cb-750-cafe-racer

Bike builders cite a lot of influences, but here's a new one: vintage spacecraft. This Honda CB 750 could nab a starring role in a sci-fi blockbuster.

I'm glad hitchBot was mangled. Intuition tells me that the destruction of such a stupid piece of garbage speaks to America's greatness. Burn in hell, hitchBot.

A proper American response would be to gut it, sell the parts, replace the entire bot with one made of happy meal boxes, adware, gps and facial recognition. Re-task the bot to travel abroad and spread it's word and gather intel. 

It's also very likely the stupid thing asked for provolone on its cheesesteak, so any dismembering was fully dissevered.

Has the term ‘café racer’ been abused beyond recognition? A growing number of experienced bike builders think so, including Madrid-based Rebellion Motorworks.

They've decided to set the record straight with a 'true' modern café—this stunning Honda CB750 F2.
