First Look: Heiwa Honda 250 Rebel

Supercool Honda-engined custom fresh from Japan

The Japanese special scene gets better every year

JUST TAKE a look at what's possible with an old air-cooled parallel-twin Honda Rebel engine and a little imagination.

Japanese custom builders Heiwa have come up with this drop-dead gorgeous creation, which we think's just mind-blowingly beautiful.

The company specialise in taking small-capacity air-cooled motors, which are often overlooked by many European special builders, and using them as the basis for a variery of street-cool machines, ranging from hard-tails to flattrackers.
