It's true. Sometimes the simple things in life are often the best. Take for example this super clean CB750 build from Montreal based workshop Clockwork Motorcycles. No clutter, no mess, no flair. Just clean lines, a simple colour palette and beautifully exposed and finished mechanical goodness. Shop owner Samuel Guertin is an ex-helicopter mechanic of 10 years who made the cross-over to building bikes 2 years ago, a passion he'd been yearning to fulfil. His Honda CB750 Cafe Racer named 'Fury' is his latest creation and as he puts it, "Fury is a modern gentleman, The perfect balance between brute and refinement", and I couldn't agree with him more.
