Honda 750 Rat-Cafe

Just saw this great Honda 750 in the little town of New Carlisle, Indiana. We could hear it from a ways off, but new it couldn't be a Harley with its Japanese whine. The cut-off pipes sure are loud though. Calling this a rat bike really isn't fair; it's just awesome, right down to the old tool boxes turned to saddle bags, and the repositioned headlight.

My favorite touch is the screw driver stuck in the cockpit, closely followed by the duct-tape reminder to "Turn Off Gas" above the gauges.
