Speed and horsepower aren’t everything when it comes to building a bike. For ad agency producer Christina Cairo, charisma and character come first. Classified Moto’s job on the 1978 Honda CM 185T introduced class and elegance to the bike. The 18-inch wheels are done in a power-coated antique white, and warm accents such as a copper stripe on the tank and the brown leather seat accentuate the bike’s stylish look. Retro meets modern as the Japanese Posh grips and Bates-style headlight ease into the bike’s soft, simplistic color scheme. With a taillight made from a stainless steel fishing rod holder and a basket formed from an old Cypress Gardens water ski, the bike is quirky in its personality, yet confident in its build.
