The custom motorcycle scene in Southeast Asia is thriving, with Malaysian shop Kerkus Cycles among the standout builders in Kuala Lumpur. Renowned for their craftsmanship, Kerkus Cycles transformed a 1994 Honda CB400 into a sleek cafe racer, showcasing meticulous attention to detail.

Starting with adjustments to the fuel tank position and subframe, Kerkus Cycles crafted a cafe racer tail unit with a handmade saddle featuring black leather upholstery and diamond stitching. The minimalist front end, clip-on handlebars, and compact LED turn signals enhance the bike’s aesthetic and performance.

The electronic components were relocated to the new tail section, accompanied by a bespoke four-into-one exhaust system and premium aftermarket air filters. The bike’s 399cc inline-four engine received performance upgrades for enhanced power and responsiveness.

Completing the build are retro-looking tires, a swingarm-mounted license plate holder, and a sophisticated color scheme with carbon fiber detailing. Kerkus Cycles’ CB400 cafe racer exemplifies their commitment to blending style with performance in every custom build.
