Customized sport (or super) bikes truly are a dime a dozen these days, but it's rare when one of them is connected personally to a global celebrity, and showcases that individual's motorcycling tastes.

Such is the case with this 2007 Honda CBR 1000 RR, which was built for Travis Barker, a wide-ranging musician who was also the drummer for the popular American pop/punk band Blink-182. Barker, who hails from Southern California, commissioned the CBR in order to promote his Riverside, California lifestyle brand and apparel company, Famous Stars and Straps, and had it pattered after his beloved metal-flake, lime-green 1966 Cadillac by Nick Anglada of Custom Sportbike Concepts. The CBR was customized primarily to celebrate the street bike stunting community, as Famous Stars and Straps supports several stunt riders. "[The sport] needs more attention," Barker told 2Wheel Tuner magazine, "The things these guys are doing on street bikes are amazing, and they deserve more recognition!"

The 2006 and 2007 CBR 1000 RR was the eighth CBR generation of Honda four-cylinder small and big bore sport bikes. By 2007 the 1000 red-lined 12,200rpm making something around 147bhp at 11,200rpm and 75.9ib-ft of torque at 8,700rpm. It was considered to be comparatively lightweight at 421lb dry. "The ergonomics were spot on." And it conquered the international race track and made street sales in equal measure. These big Hondas were considered magical with their 1000-horsepower in a 600-package becoming a target for the remaining three of the "big four" Japanese manufacturers the next year.

This beautiful, green metal-flake paint executed by Bang Customs, is everywhere, even on the CBR's engine cases, and the wheels are replicas of the Cragar "mags" on Barker's Caddy, and built by Urban Industries specifically for this bike. There's a ton of chrome, too, and while Barker's Caddy has very little of the "same stuff", you'd know immediately that both bike and car were siblings when you ever saw them parked next to each other.

Other special touches include the custom whitewall Pirelli Diablo tires, which were hand-painted by Anglada's painter and took five days of work to get right. Air suspension at both ends from Eye Candy Cycle Designs keeps the wheels in contact with the terra firma, while a one-off Tsukigi exhaust makes everything sound right. A CSC swingarm assembly (there were only three in existence at the time of the build) finishes off the back end, while Hotbodies Racing contributed the sexy tail section.

"I think it's a style I've never seen applied to a street bike," Barker told 2 Wheel Tuner. "New and fresh. We are going to enjoy this bike." So while there are many CBR 1000s on the road, you can be sure this one's a true one-of-a-kind ride.
