In the 1960s till 1970s, Honda wanted to sell the scrambler variant of their road-going motorcycle models by using the code of 'CL,' while the road-going by the code of 'CB'. Unfortunately the models is discontinued at the early of 1980s, even though the scrambler models has since become increasingly popular.
This motorcycle project began when Anka, a Honda's local collector and his friend workshop were bought a Honda CB650 and decided to rebuild, because the bike condition has also been modified before. Their intention to buy the bike for their first project.

Then the bike shipped to a modification workshop named Thrive MC and immediately dismantled as a whole. The modifier team of Thrive Motorcycles decided to build the figure of Honda CL650 based of the Honda CB650 which originally did not offered the scrambler models. As it has been known also that Thrive Motorcycles is one good custom garage because they are very attentive to detail and has a high level of quality. (Look at another Thrive MC bike).
The decision that the bike is built into a modern scrambler motorcycle with the specification of Honda CL, so its original seat, tank, fender, side cover and the exhaust is removed and replaced with new ones. The bike's machine repainted and aligned with the new frame that have been modified. A new set of 4-into-2 exhaust specially made by Thrive Motorcycle, which in the process is not a lot of welding.
