Honda CB750 by Clockwork Motorcycles

Clockwork Motorcycles are found in ’11 in Montreal, Quebec. Their goal is to turn vintage motorcycles into simple, minimalist machines made to be ridden and to provide better aesthetic. ‘It’s all about authentic materials and true craftsmanship, about quality and attention to details’, says Samuel Guertin, the owner of Clockwork Motorcycles.

They have built several models, and some of them are, ’74 Kawasaki Z1 called ‘The Wanderer’, ’78 Suzuki gs550 called ‘Country Gent’ and ’80 Honda cx500c called ‘El Numero Uno’.

Their latest model is ’71 Honda CB750 called ‘Fury’. They didn’t want the bike to have any flashy paint or shiny parts. They wanted clear lines, shapes and curves, and that’s why they paint their bike with muted tone colors.

On this bike are fitted GSX-R forks. And for the vintage look to still be present, they choose the non-inverted ones. The wheels are 16 inch front and rear Harley Davidson rim, as for the tires, they are Firestone Deluxe champion. For all that rubber to be fitted, they needed to set the swingarm to be 2 inches longer.

The stock oil tank was retained from the original model, and shaved btw. The seat is a mix of leather and suede, and with the same idea, the clear lines to be kept. For the saddle in charge was Ginger from New Church Moto. As for the engine, it was performed full rebuild, with 836cc bore included.

Great looking bike, with that vintage look and muted tone. Good job, Clockwork Motorcycles.
