Slipstream Creations has earned a reputation for its magnificent makeovers, whether it's a restomod or full-on custom project. The man behind the two-wheeled works of art is James Fawcett, who handles most aspects of his bike-modding ventures in-house. The 1974 Honda CL200 Scrambler featured in this article was commissioned to Slipstream a while back and is a breathtaking piece of work. The motorcycle was passed on to its current owner by his late father, and James gave it a well-deserved makeover to honor his memory.


James started the project by removing the stamped steel subframe of the CL200 and replacing it with a handmade tubular module. The rear section features an LED lighting strip and a custom fender. The bike also boasts a scrambler-style bench seat with brown leather upholstery and sturdier aftermarket shock absorbers. The running gear includes the repurposed forks, disc brake, and wheel hub of a CB360T from the same era, along with new aluminum rims and stainless-steel Buchanan’s spokes.


Slipstream retrofitted the exhaust headers of the CB360 to place the sweltering pipes low, covered in a layer of satin-black Cerakote, terminating in reverse megaphone mufflers made of stainless-steel. The CL200 received a single-unit regulator/rectifier, a lithium battery, and bespoke wiring all-round. The fuel tank retains the original CL200 part, now sporting a sublime white and blue color scheme topped with silver pinstripes and Honda graphics.


The motorcycle's cockpit area bears a single aftermarket dial and a low-rise handlebar with reproduction switches, bar-end blinkers, and brown grips matching the seat upholstery. The bike's updated footgear includes dual-purpose tires from Kenda. The owner can occasionally ride with a passenger, so James decided against employing the typical high-mounted exhaust you'll see on most scramblers.


We don't have any details on the pricing aspect, though, so you'll have to get in touch with Slipstream Creations to find out what a similar build might cost. James Fawcett's solo masterpiece is impressive and of impeccable quality, living up to his talent.
