Every once in a while, you stumble upon someone that combines the passion and the know how to build great custom motorcycles. That happened to me earlier today when I discovered Ichiban Moto. Building old fashioned cafe racers the old fashioned way with old fashioned tools, Ichiban Moto embodies the spirit of Zen. Patience and tenacity lead to incredible works of art.
Below are just two videos Ichiban offers to the cafe racer devotee on its YouTube channel. The first thoroughly inventories the tools necessary to build a great cafe racer, while the second goes through a painstakingly precise rear suspension modification ensured to improve handling and aesthetics. Enjoy.
