Show Us Yours: Honda CB900 Special

Another throwback! Ten years ago Darren sent in his Honda CB900 Special! Want to see your pride and joy in our magazine, on our website and on our social media pages? Then fill in the form here>> 

Darren Allport always wanted a street special based on a dohc Honda, so here are his efforts so far.


“I thought you might like to see a pie of my latest project. It’s a 1980 CB900FA with a 1998 CBR900RR Fireblade rear including monoshock conversion and one-off adjustable bottom shock link. Up front are 1994 CBR600F forks, while the engine breathes through a home brew Harris/Yoshimura hybrid exhaust system, Mikuni VM33 carbs running open bell mouths (the induction noise here is awesome).

“The front dropped in with just a steering stem swap, next on the list is a good few shakedown runs then a full on Spencer rep paintjob for next year’s season.”
