Keeping It Simple With Atelier Medusa’s 1971 Honda CB 750 Four

Sometimes, all you need to make a custom motorcycle stand out from the crowd is a little bit of original commitment. While the majority of the bespoke cycle community has fallen into the relentless torrent of their own constructive limbo, France’s Atelier Medusa has decided to keep things simple with this 1971 Honda CB 750 — a notion that, at least in this day and age, seems unabashedly farfetched.

It goes without saying that the Japanese four-cylinder has earned its title as one of the most prominent platforms for modern-day modification — with an intuitive design, customizable subframe, and tried-and-true dependability, the CB 750 has become something of a go-to platform for many of today’s road-faring motorcyclists. That being said, the factory platform leaves a lot to be desired in the way of visual presentation. Luckily, Atelier Medusa knows exactly what the bike needs in terms of an aesthetic upgrade, including a retouched chassis that lends itself to cafe-oriented styling, a shortened frontend, and a pair of burly Shinko e270 tires that give the 750 Four a dominative presence. Any additional plastic and metal peripherals have been discarded, leaving the air-cooled, 736cc Honda in its most vulnerable state — a raw disposition that exhibits Honda’s iconic aesthetic qualities. Aside from the moto’s newly administered leatherette seat and customized stock headlight, Medusa has left the handsome 750 to its own devices — proving, once again, that complexity is often the enemy of progress.
