Kott Motorcycles - Orange CB750

This bike was built with the idea in mind to potentially emulate what Honda might do with a throwback style bike. In order to achieve this the paint was an almost identical match to the early 70’s candy flake orange. The tank was also given the deep knee cutaways for rider comfort. The gusset style rearset plates were c.n.c cut and fit into the frame at the existing passenger peg frame rail. The oil tank was also a new design that incorporates the 1 and 3/4 cooling hole directly through the middle of the tank. It was shaped in a way to match not only the radius of the rear tire but also to replicate the shape of the rearsets. This is a prime example of the full CB750 cafe package that has no spared expense.

Dustin Kott On Café Racer Philosophy

The short film "Cafe Cowboy" is about Dustin Kott from Kott Motorcycles in California. The film gives an insight in to Dustin's world and philosophy on Cafe Racers he builds from 70's Japanese motorcycles - especially Hondas. This film is beautifully shot and featuring plenty of imagery of his hand built Cafe Racers...
