Motto Moto CB750
Jason Koschnitzke is an industrial designer by trade and has been wrenching part-time on bikes for many years and many late nights. Recently he decided to follow his dreams and make wrenching his full-time job. So he created Motto Motorcycles which are based in Chicago and have a passion for Japanese style cafe racers and street trackers. The first project was to build a ‘barn fresh’ style bike that looked like it had “40 years of stories to tell”. He purchased a 1978 Honda CB750 for the project and started to create a bad ass 70’s cafe racer that conjured up visions of being discovered in the barn on an old farm in the middle of nowhere – the look he refers to as “barn fresh racer“. He started with the engine, it’s built with a 836cc Wiseco 10.25 C/R kit and supporting go fast internal modifications. It’s running Keihin 29mm CR carbs and a ceramic coated Kerker 4-1 exhaust with 2.0” baffle. The front end is set up with clip-ons, Progessive suspension and Race Tech Gold Valve cartridge emulators. It has double disc brakes in the front, drilled rotors and he flipped the forks around to place the calipers on the back side. The original Read-Titan endurance racer tank, which carries almost 6 gallons of fuel truly completes this beautiful bike. These amazing photos were taken by photographer Mark Wisniowski and we love the vintage grainy feel that works so well with this gritty cafe racer. You can see more shots of this CB750 on the Motto Moto site or check out Mark’s portfolio on Probe3.
