Kott Motorcycles, an American take on the café racer

Published: 15 April 2011

Kott Motorcycles is at the fore of the café racer revolution in the states. Based outside of LA, this shop specialises in converting 1970s Japanese motorcycles into a custom American take on the style Britain made famous in the late 1950s.

As MCN showed you Café Cowboy, we thought we’d give you some photos of what liberties Kott Motorcycles are taking with this fashion. Here is a Honda 550 that they’ve customised into a classic looking café racer, entitled Urban Gangster.
