2014 Honda CB1100


Christopher Kent is a 51-year old tech exec from Iowa. Here the details of the build as per the original article on Revival Cycles: "He is the “custom” part of Smith Brothers Classics and Customs, working alongside the five Smiths with whom he grew up racing motocross, ATV and drag bikes. The bike was purchased in running condition, but that was about it. He’d been looking for a CB750 or CB900, then found the CB1100 at a price he couldn’t refuse. Hill climbs were an almost impossible goal, but Christopher had lived in Colorado for a few years, and that was 100% the inspiration for this build. “Racing a hand-built motorcycle up 12 miles of Pikes Peak was a dream — dream big!” Christopher started the project in September 2017. The budget was $13k, a figure that held for about two weeks. This was no half-assed build. The major modifications started with the drafting of a CBR 1000 front end, complete with a custom Cognito Moto triple tree. Custom machined hubs and fork clamps were fabricated for a race setup. A front plate was custom fabricated with rolled headlight casing, cradling the Denali single HID lamp. He installed Motogadget pin lights, switches and a Motoscope Mini, all wired into a Motogadget m.unit Blue. He also fitted Domino grips and Vortex V3 levers. Christopher’s good friend Mike Frieden helped him with the metalwork. They sculpted functional fuel tank air scoops to force air to the heads; constructed a complete one-piece tail section (removing eight inches from the rear subframe to accommodate it) and seat pan from aluminum; modified the rear swingarm for Fox Podium RC1 shocks. The engine was overhauled and hot rodded with a performance Web Cams racing cam. A Dynojet Power Commander V with auto tuner was wired in for altitude change and custom configurations."
