The Director 500

This particular 1973 500 has and will continue to hold high regard  as one of the better machines that left Kott Motorcycles in early 2012 and then went on to set the standard for subsequent machines built in the months to follow. This 500, featured in Return of the Cafe Racer as well as in the very first issue of Iron and Air, boasts a flat silver monochromatic finish, a chestnut brown leather seat, and numerous handcrafted components rich with antiquated brass plating. This build was a turning point for both improved aesthetic and mechanical design due to increased innovative ideas as well as a higher price tag which allowed for the then-unprecedented outcome of the finished build.
