Cool Wrenchmonkees CB - March 2, 2009, 08:07 PM

The Honda forum needed a cool post...

Wrenchmonkees Gorilla Punch becomes museum piece
-hellforleather-






This custom CB750, built by Copenhagen motorcycle collective the Wrenchmonkees, has been admitted to the Danish Museum of Art and Design.
We're big fans of the approach the Monkees apply to their customs, working from found or donated motorcycles to create low budget, but highly original motorcycles.
This CB750 is no exception, using a stock motor and frame but still achieving wholly transformative results.

The usual custom approach of upgrading the suspension, brakes and exhaust is present, but actually contributes very little to the end product.
Most of the transformation is down the wheels, tires, paintjob and incredibly clever details.

The solid wheels and oversized tires lend the Gorilla Punch just the right amount of cartoonishly exaggerated proportions, making the other mechanical elements look delicate and almost undersized in comparison.


Check out the clever routing of the brake lines and electrics, nearly removing them from sight and lending to an incredibly clean look.
The rear brake line, for instance, runs through the swingarm before popping out just ahead of the drilled brake caliper.
The front lines run down the frame, rather than the forks. Don't miss the vintage grips either.

The paint job almost passes without notice, but simply accentuates the tank and tail's already appealing lines while all the other components are powdercoated in grey,
making it look like they were all conceived as one whole rather than a multitude of components.
But, everywhere we look we see interestingly chosen or customized pieces.
This is what makes the Gorilla Punch our favorite Wrenchmonkees bike so far; we can't wait to see how they better it.

that thing looks really nice, the white walled tires are a perfect fit...

what are those two copper lines coming down from the rear of the bike? oil or coolant lines maybe?

OMFG....coolest CB ever...by far.

I almost don't want to build one now, as it would always be second best.


Right up the 1 hole.

The wiring is run inside the copper tubing from what I've read.

its clean, its nice, but i think if you put RJ's bike in a studio you'd get pictures of a bike that is just as sexy.

Edit: please see page 7 of this thread
http://www.mmsports.org/forum/viewto...7061&start=120

where is the oil tank? if the wires are in the pipes and run under the seat... why not oil tank the seat and run it kick start only? its questions like these that make it a good looking bike but not the best build i've ever seen.
