If you ask me what the number one base bike is for a café racer build, it would be the Honda CB750. Although other platforms like BMW become a lot more popular the last couple of years, I still think that the CB750 served the most custom builds. With ease… (don’t blame me for not stacking/backing this with data or stats). The problem with this is that’s it gets hard to stand out with a custom CB750. Most things are done before, good and bad. I think the last two years only, I’ve featured around 30 CB750’s. From shed builders to 100% professional machines. They come in all kinds of variations. So with every featured CB750, I also tend to be more selective, but luckily, there are still builds out there that make me smile. Just like this CB750 from Bolt Motor Co. from Valencia, Spain.
The most remarkable thing about this CB750 is that it’s amazingly clean with a color palette that hits a sweet spot. The entire electric system has been remodeled and found the center just under the modified gas tank, which comes from an earlier CB750. The stance of this machine is absolutely perfect which you can see from the side: its bone line is 100% straight from front to rear. The small (but wide) seat are matched beautifully with the gas tank and the wide and low place handlebar give the rider a somewhat upright riding position, which looks pretty comfortable. Unfortunately, I don’t have more specs than this and from what I can see, but I do know that this is a true beauty (maybe one for our top 10 Honda CB’s?).
