Brace yourselves, it's about to get geeky. We don't typically dig on celebrity crushes, but we've made a special exception for the lovely Katee Sackhoff. As one of the stars of "Battlestar Galactica," the actress quickly established herself as our favorite toaster-frakking Viper pilot, and her charm outside that tomboy role only made her more endearing. Now she's gone and given us another reason to be smitten. Sackhoff recently contracted the custom motorcycle gurus at Classified Moto to build her a machine. Unlike most builds, the crew had almost completely free reign to do as they pleased. The only stipulation Sackhoff gave the builders was that she didn't want the pegs positioned behind her.

The Richmond, Virginia-based shop whipped up what it's calling the KT600. The bike started life as a Honda XL600R Enduro before getting a full work over. The factory front forks were ditched in favor of a set from a Kawasaki ZX6-R, and the craftsmen at Classified used Sackhoff's bike as an excuse to play around with the rear suspension geometry as well. After much sweating, the old Honda was rolling on a single-sided swing arm from a Triumph Sprint. Blisteringly cool.

Throw in some tuning by Progressive Suspension and a coiled stainless steel exhaust system by Chase Metal and the KT600 looks as if it would be at home on the streets of Caprica. (Hey, we warned you about the geekiness.) A film crew from Cafe Racer TV followed Classified Moto throughout the build, which means we'll get a glimpse at the full construction when the episode airs early next year. Until then, check out BikeExif and Classified Moto for more details.

      Starbuck's coffee is overrated.

      Sometimes actors are just acting. And sometimes, there's just a little reality to the badass motherfrakkers they portray on television. Sackhoff is one such actor. It's fair to say I wouldn't want to meet her in a dark alley.

      so cool... in her new role in 'Longmire' she's even tougher than Starbuck, even with the pole-dancing episode...

      Ughhhh, she's ugly as hell like all bblondes. I'd much rather have a nice looking Mexican chick...they actually have some curves and they have blck har, which frankly loks much better. Only old people like blondes. If I found her running about my house in panties I would NOT do her....more like shoot her a few times with an AK and then tell the police that a troll was causing havoc in my house.

        Well, she's not even a good looking blonde, more like a she-male!

      Worst. Actress. Ever. Couldn't wait for her to killed off in 24.

        Nope. Great actress. Bad direction. Becomes apparent after watching her via multiple directors.

      I didn't watch the new Galactica series because Starbuck is a woman, that's just wrong. Also why the hell does the camera man shake so much ?

        Thought so too - watched it anyway - works out quite well. She's an amazing actress. Some of the best sci-fi on TV for years. Shame you missed it.

        Dirk Benedict might have been prettier, but Katee Sackhoff could kick his ass when he was in his prime.

        Can't say it enough, this is the best series of any genre I've ever seen by a lot. You're missing out due to your nerding out over details.

        Good for you, you're now officially cooler than the rest of us.

        i recently sat through all of the original battlestar - even the excruciatingly awful later shows set on earth. i'm totally wishing your arrogance deceives you into doing the same as punishment for your ignance. (teaser - the last ever episode, set on "planet starbuck", is an absolute classic)

      What a beautiful bike. It's like a modern cafe racer with a bit of steampunk attitude thrown into the mix. Love it!

      Umm...Autoblog writer? It's pronounced "frakking"...NOT "fragging". Have you even watched an episode of Battlestar Galactica?
