Montreal-based Clockwork Motorcycles knows how to turn heads. From their handcrafted components to their slick final designs that are simple, uncluttered, and unassuming. We like that, and understand the loudest one in the room is often the weakest. That’s why a dialed-down design like this garners our attention; because it’s only after cranking this bike to life do you realize what power the Phantom has to offer.
It’s built out from an older Honda CB750 that was pretty much on its last leg. The engine had to be rebuilt with oversized piston and rings, along with machined valve seats and a head overhaul. Clockwork also trimmed the rear section and smoothened out all the unnecessary tabs and brackets to offer a streamlined look. In order to keep the bike on a low profile, the standard forks were also shortened by 3 inches with a set of Continental Classic Attack tires to boot. Rejetted carburetors and a Cone engineering stainless muffler complement the rebuilt motor, bringing everything together in a smooth slate-gray finale. Be on the lookout for more from Clockwork Motorcycles for they are certainly not done yet. [H/T: ROTCR]
