Los Angeles’ Outlier’s Guild Custom Motorcycle Show – better known as the “OG Moto Show” – has quickly become one of the most renowned customs shows on the West Coast, despite 2017 being the events inaugural year. In addition to a large crowd of fans attending the inaugural event, the show also garnered some big sponsors including Honda Motorcycles, Roland Sands Designs, Bell Helmets, Hasselblad cameras, Indian Motorcycle, and quite a few more.
Jay LaRossa, the co-founder of the OG Moto Show felt that LA needed an event comparable to Austin’s Handbuilt Show or Portland’s The One Moto Show. “There are so many great shows across the country that celebrate this style of vintage bikes and motorcycle culture, but none are here in Southern California,” explained LaRossa.
At the one day event held at The Container Yard in downtown LA, more than 75 impressive one-off builds were displayed last year from some of the industry’s biggest names, like Deus’s Michael “Woolie” Woolaway, Roland Sands, Jay LaRossa of Lossa Engineering, and many, many more. Another professional builder to display his respective work at the inaugural event was Ezikiel J. Dacanay of N°37 Garage.
Dacanay showed off a gorgeous 1977 Suzuki GS550 that he’d torn down and turned into something between a board tracker and a bobber – a “bob-tracker” if you will. The bespoke Suzuki sports a one-off frame, a triangular headlamp, and a particularly cool jockey-shifter, all sitting on thin Avon rubber. The dual-sprung saddle and hardtail scream bobber, while the reversed handlebars and are much more reminiscent of a 1920’s board track racer.
While details are somewhat limited, the photos of this one more or less speak for themselves. You can find Ezikiel J. Dacanay and N°37 Garage’s 1977 Suzuki GS550 “Bob-Tracker” for sale here on Craigslist in San Francisco, California with a price of $10,000.
