Albert “The Chief” Hurt comes from a long line of automobile mechanics. His grandfather, father and all his uncles worked as mechanics in the family shop. At the age of 12, Albert earnt his pocket money by sweeping the shop floor. “After I had worked there six months I was able to scrape up enough money for my first street bike, a 1972 Yamaha DT1 250,” he says. There have been many bikes since then, but it took a marriage breaking down and being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer to really motivate Albert to build his dream bike. “I have found a passion that I always had,” he says. After surviving his battle with cancer, Albert decided to build the ‘ultimate cafe racer.’ So he got to work and managed to find the perfect donor bike, a beat up old KZ1000 in El Paso, Texas. After 7 months of wrenching, including many nights in his garage during winter he has finally finished. We’re pleased to introduce you to Silver Bullit Cafe‘s KZ1000.
