Black and Copper 550 Custom Built Motorcycle

View all 8 Photos

Kott Motorcycles is an LA-based workshop that specializes in Honda CBs from the late 70s. One of their latest builds, the Black and Copper 550, is based on an already-altered motorbike with components from 1977 and 1978 CB550s. In further remaking the ride, Kott Motorcycles went for a vintage-inspired look. They customized the motorcycle with a long and lean frame but a shorted headlight for a distinct silhouette, characteristic of drag bikes. Finishing the machine in black and bright shades of brown, they added fine details such as sparing copper accents and a distressed brown leather seat.

A life-long passion for design and innovation led Davide to New York City, where he lives with his family. He created Gessato in 2006, and he's been pioneering new communication tools and techniques ever since.
