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.
