1978 Honda CB750 ‘Ultra Noir’ by Clockwork Motorcycles

Honda’s CB750 has long been a popular choice for bike customizers to tweak to their liking. We prefer to keep things simple, which is why we fell in love with the custom 1978 Honda CB750 Ultra Noir.

Built by the talented team at Clockwork Motorcycles, the 2-wheeler sports a monochrome, black powder coated exterior – blending gloss, satin and matte finishes throughout. The Montreal-based crew kept the stealthy theme going strong with the black exhaust pipe, slightly brushed fuel tank and matching leather seat. Powering this bad boy is a completely rebuilt engine complete with a 836cc Wiseco big-bore kit, SuperFlow valves, performance camfshaft, and a set of Keihin CR29 carbs with K&N filters. The trend of murdered out bikes may have died down quite a bit over the years, but this Honda proves it can still be done tastefully.
