Shared electric moped startup Revel said Friday that it will shut down its service in Austin later this month.

CB XXX: A top-spec Honda CBX1000 from dB Customs

The Honda CBX1000 is not only iconic—it’s massive. The six-cylinder, 24-valve behemoth was a beast in every sense of the word: an unapologetic sport bike that was blindingly quick for its time.

If that’s your vibe, rejoice: this CBX1000 restomod from dB Customs still wears all of its original bodywork… and paint...
