Contrasting with the exotic and never-produced Norton is this home-built special that looks far cleaner than a backyard-build has any right to. Not much is known about the CB800, but we can see that its creative owner has fitted a second cylinder bank to a CB400F to create this air-cooled V-8. There doesn’t appear to be many modifications other than a slightly stretched frame, giving it proportions that look almost factory.

The video below sadly does not include any riding footage, but the bike looks and sounds great, aside from a rattling sound at idle from the primary chain. Flawed, perhaps, but I’d still take it for a spin!
