East London based Rebels Alliance 1972 Honda CB500 “Bad Manners” is one of the best examples of a clean bike build that we’ve seen this year. Bad Manners has just the right amount of style and swagger combined with high quality craftsmanship and clean lines. Getting to the finished product took some doing, though. This wasn’t an early 70’s Honda CB500 barn find that just needed a little rebuild work and a badass coat of paint (but it most definitely got one of those anyway). The bike affectionately referred to as Bad Manners was stripped bare and rebuilt starting with a vapor blasted engine that was also blueprinted by their master mechanic. Then the bike got CR race carbs, a full stainless exhaust system, lowered front forks with modified internals, a dual caliper conversion, bespoke wiring loom, speedo drive digital conversion and a full complement of LED lights. It keeps aspects of the original Honda DNA while still getting the complete Rebels Alliance which makes it even more badass. In short, this full conversion is nothing short of amazing.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
