The retro bB styling is nothing new. Peoples in Japan have been doing it, pretty much since the bB was released. And they have been doing quite a good job with it. Some of them are really sexy. My favourite part with some of these retro-styled bB’s is the deletion of the lip. It makes the bB so much smoother, even though it is still so boxy.
Today I have a few retro-styled bB’s for your enjoyment.
This is one of my favourite ones. I like the whole overall theme of this bB. Especially the Way the steelies were painted and how well they work with he colour of the box. The spider grille is pretty cool unto itself. I had a buddy that had a spider grille like that for his box. It wouldn’t fit on his box though, it fit on mine and looked kind of good. Turns out that the shop that fixed his box after his accident did a really, really bad job and the whole front end was pretty derailed. I am unsure if he ever got it fixed, I should check on that. Anyway, more bB’s…
Simple and clean, I dig it.
This one isn’t as retro-styled as the others, but I wanted to post it because it is the same Open Deck that I posted many moons ago. It’s still looking good too.
The placard there says, “bB American Style.” It’s pretty wild how we here in the States strive to be like those in Japan, while people in Japan strive to be like us here in the states. I really like this one because it has the Astro Van headlight setup. I still am yet to see this done here in the States. I think it will blow people’s minds once it happens.
I love the colours on this bB. A cream with a white, so subtle yet executed so well. I could definitely do without the white wipers though.
Another subtle and clean example. Love the wheels, looks like American Racing wheels.
And probably my favourite of all time. I blogged about this bB a while back and have been slowly finding more pics and info on her. Hopefully I can get enough to do a full write up on her some day.
