Custom-Made 1972 Honda CB250 Cafe Racer by Hookie Co.’s

Custom motorcycles are the best way to express your attitude through your machine. One such story comes from the words of Markus Flossmann, the founder of YT Industries. He was ready to get his first custom product and the only source he trusted was Hookie Co.

The brand is owned by Nico, Cristoph and David while all them have a good chemistry when it comes to things related to custom bikes. After a good talk on the topic, they all agreed on making the custom bike from Honda CB250 as it can be a great compact option out of all.

The output of a cafe racer from 1972 Honda CB250 required huge changes to the profile. The donor motorcycle was first dismantled to start the work from scratch. CB250’s frame was chopped from the rear while it’s fuel tank was given an overhaul along with few curves to get a new profile out of the same unit.

The tail end was redesigned with a leather single seat and an even more effective rear panel. The wiring on the motorcycle is all new as Hookie Co. is known for doing the same on all of their builds.


They have used a custom stainless steel exhaust system along with reworked carburetor and air filter. The front forks are dropped a bit lower while the rear uses all new non-standard YSS shocks. CB250’s vintage charm was recreated with original drum brakes and black spoke wheels on the motorcycle.

The front 19 inch wheel is slightly bigger than the rear 18 inch unit on the motorcycle. An analogue speedometer, tiny LED rear light, monochrome paint and full LED front headlight was used to complete this ultimate package for Markus Flossmann.
