Under the leadership of Adrian Campos, the crew at Bolt Motor Co. (BMC) over in Spain has delivered some truly incredible machines over the years. Their custom bikes have garnered attention far and wide, without ever becoming repetitive or boring in any way. Although it isn’t one of their newest endeavors, the breathtaking cafe racer pictured above does a great job at showcasing what they’re all about.
It’s based on a Honda CB750 from the model-year 1994, and the amount of visual heft that BMC has managed to remove is genuinely impressive. Upon arrival at their shop in Valencia, the retro CB was quickly placed on the workbench and stripped of all its factory bodywork. Several other bits and pieces followed suit, before Adrian and his team busied themselves with some fabrication work.

They used 3D printing technology to craft a slender cafe racer tail section, which is topped with a custom saddle featuring black leather and diamond pattern stitching. It’s seamlessly perched on a modified subframe, with the whole shebang supported by a pair of adjustable Hagon shocks. These bad boys carry piggyback reservoirs just like the motorcycle’s stock units.

BMC kept the standard telescopic forks, but they swapped the triple clamps with bespoke items made of billet aluminum. A small front fender is placed in between the stanchions and accompanied by a swingarm-mounted counterpart at the back. Rounding out the new attire is classy fuel tank transplanted from an older CB750 model, perfectly complementing the lines of the 3D-printed tail.

Front-end lighting comes from a small, but potent headlamp, while the rear is lit by an LED strip incorporated into the tail section. In the cockpit area, the first thing to grab our attention is a flat aftermarket handlebar, wearing Motogadget grips and bar-end turn signals. The German brand also supplied their appropriately named Motoscope Tiny speedometer, which is the only bit of instrumentation you’ll find on this bike.

Not wanting to clutter up the rear end, Bolt Motor Co. installed a swingarm-mounted license plate bracket. It houses the rear LED turn signals, sourced from the Motogadget catalog just like the front items. Interestingly enough, the Spanish custom bike artisans decided to keep the CB’s factory six-spoke wheels, simply cloaking their rims in fresh rubber for optimal grip. They, of course, haven’t overlooked the powertrain sector.

The CB750’s inline-four engine was subjected to a complete overhaul, and it should now perform just as well as it did when it rolled off the production line. Its carbs were rebuilt and then capped off with premium pod filters, but we also notice a tailor-made exhaust at the other end of the combustion cycle. Lastly, the upper bodywork was finished in a glossy silver base and red accents.
