Honda CB550 E3 - April 16, 2012, 05:01 PM

just posting so Fitz's whimpers and regrets parting out his CB



A few years back in New York, in a 4th floor city apartment E3 Motorcycles was born. In May of 2011 E3 relocated to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to a workshop better suited for the fast growing custom motorcycle and surfboard business. Today E3 has an impressive portfolio of custom builds including a '74 Honda CB550 built for actor PJ Ransone (The Wire, Generation Kill, Treme) and this, their latest build, a '75 Honda CB550 built for Alberto from the Bronx.



"I'm a big fan of the CB550 as a vintage platform and have rebuilt 4 in the past year for local clients. The latest 75 CB550 was built for my friend Al, a first time rider who lives up in the Bronx. He's 21 years old, it's his first ride, and he busted his ass working all winter to pay for the bike." said David from E3.


"Al was looking for a simple and raw looking bike to get around the city and we managed to create something cool and fun without breaking the bank. We took the bike out for some testing after sorting out tags and registration this week and it's an absolute blast in all respects. Handles quite well and is tuned to the T."



Along with the work done to clean up and simplify the Honda an impressive list of custom parts went in to creating what David of E3 Motorcycles refers to as a low cost build. Some of the custom parts on the CB550 Cafe Racer include:
