They say there’s always a first time for everything, and this is Bolt Motor Company’s first customised Kawasaki. Based on the result, we’re sure it won’t be the last! It’s an 82’ Kawasaki KZ550. Such a classic base engine required an old school look.
When we accepted this project, we were excited about two things. First, we were dying to get our hands on a Kawasaki; and second, we loved what its owner wanted to do with it. Precisely, he wanted to build a bike that evoked the golden age of a 70’s Japanese Cafe Racer. And so we began!
This customisation features a small headlight, black exhaust megaphone, handlebars, analog lap counter, vintage wheels, and black engine…. But what stands out the most about this Kawasaki KZ550 is its paint job. Both the green tone and the Kawasaki letters of the 70s give it a most pleasing vintage air. Similarly, check out the short sub-frame and the genuine 70’s upholstery.
Because every project that leaves our shop is original and one-of-a-kind, they all take a little piece of our heart. Nothing’s impossible for Bolt Motor Company. Whether you’re looking for a classic Cafe Racer or one with an alternative touch, we can help you build the motorbike of your dreams.
