Carpy Wrenching

It’s not everyday you get to witness a master at work – like Steve “Carpy” Carpenter from the amazing CB750 Cafe doing a bit of ‘wrenching’. Ok, so this might not be the way Carpy usually takes to a cafe racer but it makes an awesome photograph. Shot by talented Los Angeles photographer Jared Schoenemann who is obsessed with two things in life; photography and cafe racers. So when the opportunity arises to combine both his passions, he never looks back. Jared has shot Carpy and his metal masterpieces numerous times, including the CB750 pictured below called the “Road Warrior’. Carpy dedicated this CB to the “brave men and women of HS-6”, who died last year in a tragic helicopter training accident. The ‘Speedy Indian’ graphic on the side cover is a tribute to the aircraft referred to as the “Indian 617”. To read about the whole ‘Road Warrior’ build with many detailed build pics and specs (which Carpy is famous for) hit this link.
