When the locomotive machinist made a custom motorcycle

Hold Fast Chicago is a small independent workshop owned by a locomotive machinist named Jeff. He ran a popular powdercoating and custom shop near Chicago for few years.

This time, he had just completed one of the custom-built motorcycle in his workshop. The figure of Honda CB750 motorcycle that became the main ingredient of this project was purchased at a price of $500.

He immediately worked by stripping it back and beginning the rebuild process with a full engine teardown and restoration once installed new piston rings, honed cylinder and all new gasket. Jeff also opted to ditch the original carburetor and use a newly rebuilt set with pod filters.

The frame of motorcycle was detabbed and the tank was sent to the Analog Motorcycle to be made more streamlined by reduced its width and added custom rivet work, knee dents, as well as a custom paint job. A new set of stainless bolts where used on the motorcycle's engine with a matching stainless steel spokes of Bunchanan's Spokes & Rims.

The forks were also rebuilt, and painted with black colored powedercoating, and the shocks, triple tree, rims and hubs. The new side cover was made to hide the EarthX lithium ion battery, and a stripped down wiring loom was used to simplify things.

And a new exhaust system from Kerker 4 into 1 exhaust was fitted with a nickel plated baffle. The front disc was drilled, added a new bushing in the swingarm, and a set of bearings were also added to the headstock.
A custom made leather seat and seat pan was bolted into place and the build was finished off with an aggressive set of Shinko tires front and back, and leather wrapped grips to match the seat.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins.... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SILODROME]
