This CB750K, named “Hot Rod Alice”, is the work of Craig Marleau at Kick Start Garage. It’s inspired by Craig’s first build from over a decade ago, and it stands out from the plethora of CB customs thanks to some thoughtful details.
Highlights of the work include the Beringer Classic/Post Classic front brakes, 836cc bore job, Motogadget M-unit, custom valve covers, Carpy’s 4-1 exhaust, DC motive top clamp, the beautiful blue paint job, and a few Kick Start Garage parts: handlebars, seat, and rear sets. Craig does his own upholstery, including the interesting white leather seat on Alice. I really love the Beringer brake as well as the custom oil tank that follows the line of the frame and doubles as an inner fender. Hot Rod Alice was featured on BikeEXIF a year ago. One of the most impressive things is the wiring, and in the BikeEXIF article it’s explained that “Craig moved all the connections to the inside of the cases, giving the CB an almost wire-free look.”
Alice is available for sale with an asking price of $13,000 in Millville, California. For more information, head on over to the KSG website. Or if you’re interested in putting Alice in your garage, you can contact Kick Start Garage directly:
