As well as looking pretty insane, Wes York’s bike has quite the story. “Two years ago I found a ’73 CB750 and a ’74 CB550 that had been falling to pieces for 20 years in a field in Illinois. I had to cut a tree that was growing through one of the wheels to move one of the bikes, and once we had got them out I realized that the engine of the 750 was intact”. We York explains he’d always been attracted for the industrial age and its relics for their rawness, the mechanical aspects and an old school touch. He worked long and hard on his Honda, modernizing and modifying it, but in keeping with its raw beauty and original vintage.
