The brainchild of Jay LaRossa of Lossa Engineering, the Poco Bastardo was a custom that started its life as a 1966 Honda CB160. Along with making significant modifications to the frame, LaRossa also fitted the little twin with plenty of modern parts to complete the cafe look and improve its performance. He initially built the bike for himself, but, eventually, he sold it to actor Jason Lee in order to grow Lossa.

So popular was the Poco Bastardo, though, that Jay LaRossa ended up making six replicas as a limited edition run. Each bike was badged and numbered with a corresponding plaque, and they all looked just like the original (with the exception of the custom rearsets and ceramic-coated, polished-tipped exhaust).

Of course, each replica featured the same trademark red frame and silver bodywork.

This example is VIN: B1601074082. It is #5 of 6 Poco Bastardo replicas. The seller purchased the bike directly from Jay LaRossa.

There is no odometer, true mileage is unknown.

Here’s an example of what this could look like when completed:
