The Sofi Tsingos GT Moto CB550 Is for Sale
Sofi Tsingos of GT Moto is selling the custom Honda CB550 cafe racer she built.
Bike advertisements aren’t usually the type of stuff posted on the motolady site, but Sofi is a MotoLady ambassador, friend, and was 2014’s MotoLady of the year. This is her personal ride, she built it, and now she has to unfortunately sell it. She’s asking $15,000 for this rolling, riding, bad ass work of art. A portion of the selling price will be going to charity, as all of GT Moto’s sales do. I’ve ridden it myself– it felt solid, rode wonderfully, and stopped great! I LOVED IT- all the visuals of a vintage bike without the mechanic trouble of one. The Honda has some serious pedigree behind it, too- Bad Kids Go 2 Hell 2 (movie), Tank Moto Magazine, Leatherman commercial, Return of the Cafe Racers, the Bike Shed, all over this here website, and many more.
Serious inquiries only should email her at sofi (at) GT-Moto.com for any other details not listed below.

Awesome ride! I personally would lower the headlight a bit, but damn, it looks good!
That is one sexy bike. I wish I were on the market to buy right now. Instead of getting myself up to my neck in another “Fixer-Upper” heh-heh. But hey – I’d love to see you build a DOHC Honda sometime. The DOHC-4 scene could use some more Cafe Racer energy. Not to mention, there will never be enough Moto Ladies who are into the same bikes as me.
