The original Honda FTR223 “Flat Track Racer” is already a very special bike, but Tim Cumpert of Cumpert Contraptions one-upped it with his shed-built version known as “The Little Honda.”
It’s based on a 2002 FTR223 and gets redone with a new subframe, minimalist seat, robust front fork, tracker bars, digital gauge, and plenty of anodized aluminum parts like the ovular headlight surround, the taillight pod, and the front and rear turn signals that make the build look truly bespoke. The red, blue/gray, white, and black colorway looks about as tasty as any we’ve come across recently, and the lightweight, nimble bike should be a hoot to helm, despite its rather modest 19 horsepower output.

This versatile, single-person fireplace emits a cozy warmth whenever you need it to, while also being doubly useful as a safe cooking surface for small items like skewers and s’mores. Since it takes just 5 ounces of isopropyl rubbing alcohol fuel for roughly 50 minutes of burn time, you’re set for the foreseeable future with just the medicine cabinet staples. It doesn’t hurt that it also looks great.
