Honda CB50 Cafe Racer by Herencia Custom Garage

Honda CB50 Cafe Racer

Recently, we featured this Honda CB750K cafe racer by Herencia Custom Garage of Argentina. Builders Federico Lozada and German Karp rarely tackle cafe builds–their style leans more toward the tracker/scrambler end of the spectrum. However, they jumped in with both feet this time, building not one but two cafe-styled builds.

What you see here is HCG #40, built as the little sibling to the CB750.  The guys were actually running late on finishing the 750, and this little bike helped them get motivated to finish both bikes.


The Honda CB50 was introduced in 1971. The 50cc four-stroke single made 6 horsepower at 10,500 rpm, and the bike weighed in at a featherlight 74 kilograms. It had a 5-speed transmission (4-speed in some countries), and later models had a disc brake up front.


The crew at HCG made this CB50 cafe racer a miniature of their larger CB750K. Seeing the two bikes side-by-side is nothing short of heart-warming. These two are damn cute together, and we would kill to have such a duo in our stable!
