Kott Motorcycles - Café Cowboy
For many, many years now, we have have wanted to get ourselves a custom motorcycle. We have simple and classic tastes in this regard, and in searching for the perfect bike build, we discovered Dustin Kott. We are pretty much on his website every other day, as he's doing exactly what we we're looking for. Dustin is passionate about the British café racer styling, but uses classic Japanese bikes as the donors for his masterpieces, specifically Honda CB's from the 70's. They are cheap, and they are plenty, so his parts pool isn't going to dry up anytime soon. Filmmaker Benedict Campbell put together this great short film about Dustin and the bikes he builds. If 2013 is going to be as good to us as we hope, we will be meeting with Dustin in person sometime later this year. If you'd like to see and learn more about Dustin Kott's motorcycles, go here.
