Bio

Kott Motorcycles is an independently-owned company based in the Los Angeles area. We specialize in the fabrication and design of vintage motorcycles, namely bikes from the 1970’s Honda CB series. My love of motorcycles goes back as far as I can remember. I have memories of sitting in front of my dad on a motorcycle as early as 2 years old and I cannot remember ever wanting to do anything else with my life.

The main objective of Kott Motorcycles is to simplify and bring functionality back into antiquated machines. It is of utmost importance to maintain a commitment to work that translates into one-of-a-kind motorcycles that perform as well as they appear. To continually build functional street machines that have café racer inspiration by redefining all aspects from front to back, bottom to top to create a more ergonomic and elegant machine all the while embracing the original vintage soul of these bikes. This is the primary purpose of this shop. This is achieved by bringing a new appeal both mechanically as well as through the enhancement of performance elements subsequently breathing new life into vintage motorcycles.
