2-12-17 Update – Reader Bob K notes that this bike is back up for sale. You can find it for sale here on Craigslist outside of Dallas, Texas for $13,500.

Post Listing Update: Frank got a healthy 74 bids on eBay, but the final result of $7,000 was not enough to meet reserve.

Called “Frank” because it’s a ‘Frankenstein’ build, this Honda CB550 was custom built by GT-Moto. The seller picked it up last October but he/she doesn’t have enough chances to ride so the bike needs a “forever home.” It features parts from other Hondas, Suzukis, Harleys, Ducatis – even a Benelli.


Highlights of the build include the cam from a Honda CB650 and a 605 big bore kit, Dyno Tech electronic ignition, front forks and calipers from a Suzuki GSX-R, Harley-Davidson wheel hub, and a Ohlins steering damper from a Ducati 996. The tank is a hybrid of a Benelli and Ducati units. This example (VIN: 2103771) also features GT-Moto’s dual undertail rear suspension with Hagon shocks.
