Bikes built by Carpy cost close to $30,000 and there is a two-year waiting list. This motorcycle was commissioned by his long-time friend, Mike Dirnt, bass player for the band Green Day! This Honda cafe-racer comes with a Letter of Authenticity signed by Michael Manning, Green Day's Production/Fleet Manager. If that wasn't enough, also included is a bass guitar signed by Mike Dirnt himself! This Carpy creation is equipped with a 915cc big cam, knife-edge crankshaft Honda four-stroke, four-cylinder engine fed by four Keihin carburetors and finished in a handsome satin black "murdered" dot finish throughout. It has a menacing look and sits just right. There is a slight paint pucker around the gas tank filler cap. Power is transferred to the rear wheel by a five-speed manual transmission with under-cut gears. Driver assist features include many custom pieces such as the Carpy front disc and rear drum brake. This 750 rides on a custom Carpy telescoping adjustable forks in the front and a Carpy custom swing arm with adjustable rear shocks, and much, much more! The staggered black rims with stainless spokes are 19-inch in the front and 18-inch in the rear with performance Avon tires, completing the stealth look of this road rocket! Early caf� racers were a British invention and used combinations of engines and frames from home-market bikes. Later came Japanese bikes such as the Honda CB750, which responded well to the caf� treatment. Stock bikes were no good for this sort of thing, plus new ones were too expensive for teenagers and 20-somethings, so Rockers built their own, often from scrapyard beaters. First to go are the standard handlebars, which are replaced by clip-ons, a racing-type tank and seat are next, then come modifications to the exhaust system, plus new paint and other minor decorating. The early cafe riders were looking for a racer image, so rarely hung superfluous goodies all over the bike. Top off the aluminum gas tank, monster front brake, alloy rims and premium rubber and you have the ultimate caf�-racer, an appealing mix of speed and style and, in effect, the world's first sportbike. This is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the best examples of a professionally built caf� racer and a genuine autographed piece of music memorabilia from one the greatest bass players of modern times! GET OUT AND DRIVE...er RIDE!
