Right now we look at a Hall of Famer, known to have the dominant sports bike layout, made for several generations giving out a standard-upright riding posture. The CB750 has been recognized as one of the best selling motorbikes in the world.  Could be one of the go-to donor bike with higher displacements. According to Bike EXIF, this type of model is one of the most sought-after motorcycle to customize without any compromise. See article [Here].

 

A Design Idea and A Collaboration of the Country’s Finest

 

CafeRacerPh had its chance to be able to look up close and get a deeper view of what went around custom motorcycle groups on social media. Visual Artist, Carlo Gabuco took turns on providing designs, making sketches on what would be made on the frame, with top fabricator Wild Custom, sourcing out custom part providers from Moto Navat and KCC (Kratos Custom Cycles), and of course help from the online community.

“..He did all the heavy lifting actually. Nangulit lang ako kung tapos na. Yung skid plate was his idea as well. And yung pag putol sa buong rear frame, and pag gawa ng whole new subframe..”

 

When we asked about the development process, here’s what Wild Custom has to share.

 

“..Itong project na to CB 750 nag umpisa to nung nakita ni Carlo Gabuco, owner, yung mga dati kong gawa sa mga bike, artist din sya, siguro may nakita sya sa mga dati kong gawa kaya pinag katiwalaan nya ko sa bike nya, ito ang una kong big bike..”
