Bryan Fuller's ShoGun Cafe Racer in Latest Cafe Racer Magazine

Cafe Racer Magazine Issue 25
I picked up a copy of the latest issue of Cafe Racer, one of my favorite bike mags, at Barnes & Noble yesterday. The cover article features famed hot-rod builder Bryan Fuller's "ShoGun" Honda CB-550 cafe racer.

The engraved metalwork --- tank, headlight shell, engine covers, and fork legs --- is what really makes the bike stand out... Fuller commissioned legendary metal engraver Tay Herrera (aka Tarrera) to design and create the Japanese-themed engravings. Go here for a video of Tarrera at work with his chisels and hammers on the ShoGun.

Pictured at the lower left here are closeup shots of ShoGun's engraved fork legs. An extensive gallery of pics showing details of ShoGun's metalwork is available here at Digital Press Images.

Car Guys: The Speed Hunters blog has a collection of great pics of Bryan Fuller's 1960 Caddy "Thundertaker" hearse, taken at the SEMA 2012 show.
