Kott Motorcycles: Portland 550

Kott Motorcycles is a custom shop out of Los Angeles, California. What Kott does with all their bikes is preserve and update. Its plain to see they bring a clean, classic style to the CB’s they work on… but what sets them apart from the multitude of other cafe racer contenders is just how clean they are. De-tabbing and filling in the gaps left behind from a strip down is a subtle art, and Kott is clearly an artist. For a look at more of their cleaned up creations head on over to their site here.

As always, we here at Essential Moto like to recognize not only the work of the builder but also the photographer. Alex Martino can take a damn fine photo, check him out here. His site is somewhat lacking in the bike department, but the direction he’s heading doesn’t seem too bad.
