Vence prodigal bikes

Sabrina (movie of 1954) was a pretty, shy and a bit awkward girl of humble origins. Frustrated because of his unrequited love for the scion of the family in which her father worked as a driver, Sabrina tried to commit suicide. Saved at the last minute, she was sent to Paris, where she attended a prestigious school. Back home, Sabr&ina was totally renovated: from awkward, insecure girl, into a beautiful and elegant young woman.

Reviewing the sinuous lines of a Honda VF 750 Sabre tank, retrieved on a website, it comes the challenge of bringing to the rank of “New-Classic Cafe Racer” an Honda CB 500 Y (always misunderstood or in most cases forgotten) retired early by his elderly owner before the normal trial stage.
After an almost total inaction for 13 years and less then 9000 km in assets, it has arrived for her the time to live a second life.

…Stay tuned!
