Return of the Cafe Racers - Sunday Screening – Kott Motorcycles

Sunday Screening – Kott Motorcycles

We’ve always found video to be one of the most inspiring forms of media. Over the years we’ve seen some incredible films that have prompted us to undertake new motorcycle projects. So with that in mind, we’ve created a new feature series called ‘Sunday Screening’. This new series will promote both old and new motorcycle videos released by filmmakers around the world whose work has inspired us.




The first Sunday Screening video in the series is by filmmaker Ryan Buller. Simply titled ‘Kott Motorcycles’ the film documents the build of a Honda CB550 cafe racer by Dustin Kott. Backed by a soundtrack by Alt-J the film gives us an insight into some of the work and processes that Dustin uses to complete each of his custom motorcycle projects.

“Kott Motorcycles is an independently-owned company based in the Los Angeles area. We specialize in the fabrication and design of vintage motorcycles, namely bikes from the 1970’s Honda CB series. My love of motorcycles goes back as far as I can remember. I have memories of sitting in front of my dad on a motorcycle as early as 2 years old and I cannot remember ever wanting to do anything else with my life.”
