About a month ago, I featured a supercharged Honda CBX that had been built by Randakk’s Cycle Shakk. Though that bike has since sold, I’ve been very impressed with Randakk and have tried to keep tabs on any other bikes coming out of his shop. This Supercharged Honda GL1000 can be yours starting June 1st – so start saving up.

Featuring a proprietary, “one-off” supercharger, this bike is branded as the RC-003. It seems this bike was initially developed as a mule so that Randakk could test and then sell a supercharger kit, though he eventually decided against production. But this bike has been running reliably with a blower since 2007, and has plenty of custom parts to help overcome any engineering challenges. Plus, just listen to the damn thing! I wish this video was longer – it reminds me of the 90s Honda B-series car engines when hitting VTEC:

This specific Supercharged Honda GL1000 features a Fageol blower with 5.0 psi of boost at 5,000 rpms. This allows the usage of premium gas and strikes a balance between extra power and reliability. For more details, there’s a great build site here.
