Honda GB400 SL – Kustom Kommune

I had the privilege of photographing this exquisite cafe racer belonging to Jimmy Goode of Kustom Kommune. Kustom Kommune is an independent community workshop located in Collingwood, Victoria, Australia. It is a dream project headed up by Jimmy and Geoff Baldwin (Return of the Cafe Racers blog). They are also responsible for putting on the Oil Stained Brain custom bike show. This Honda GB400 SL was certainly a highlight of that show. It has been massively customised by Raider Motorsport, bored out and makes the most beautiful noise when running. Final details were finished off by Jimmy and the gorgeous flake paintwork was supplied by Thom Armstrong from Rusty Kustoms Paint Department.

I photographed this bike on location at Kustom Kommune to show off it’s warm tones and because the bike totally matches the raw sprit of the space. Worth noting that Jimmy is now looking at selling this bike to continue funding for the community garage space. A worthy cause but it will be sad to see this bike go. You can read more about the build detals at ROCR blog and see more of my photography work here.
