Swan Song

The build plan was to recreate a completely trashed 1977 Honda CB750K into a two seat Brat Styled beast. Mathew had owned the bike for decades and although it was completely worn out, he wanted to keep it and use it as a platform for the build. We decided to lengthen the wheelbase by 2 inches to get that “hung out there” look so quintessentially brat style. We wanted the engine to really stand out so a slim minimalist tank was ideal.

We built an all aluminum CB400F styled fuel tank to achieve the little tank/big motor look. Up front I built a double disc brake setup using classic Honda calipers and rotors plus a set of our custom billet triple clamps.

Instruments are analogue mini gauges with our custom aluminum mini gauge mount that allows for ignition, 2 gauges and the choke to reside. The seat was formed from an aluminum base plate just long enough to accommodate Matt and his girl friend! Motogadget M unit handled the electrics with LED headlight and tail light, Brutal Shinko dirt styled rubber with blacked out wheels completed the look. The engine was treated to a complete stock rebuild with the addition of our custom fabricated RRR/Hindle 4-2 Stainless Steel Exhaust.
