Blacktrack Motors' raison d'être is to create pure café racers . The process involves taking classic motorcycles, stripping them to the bare essentials and bringing them up to date with contemporary design and components. Built for riders that are disillusioned with modern motorcycle design, but want more safety, efficiency and reliability than older motorcycles offer. Not concept motorcycles, but practical machines, designed for daily use on the ruban noir.

Motorcycles that are built with passion—and fueled by emotion.

Each Blacktrack Motors series will be built on a carefully selected vintage platform, and produced in limited numbers. Our flagship model is the BT-01, based on the Honda CX500, that will soon be available to order on the website:

Each BT-01 will start out as a hand-picked, 80s-model Honda CX500—treated to a thorough overhaul before any other work commences. As with the prototype, it will then be stripped of all superfluous bits, and redesigned to be more compact. And, most importantly, it'll be made significantly lighter, thanks to all-new carbon fiber bodywork.

An arsenal of top-shelf components bring the BT-01's performance and handling up to date. Highlights include Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes, Mikuni carbs and a full stainless steel exhaust system. Clip on handlebars, rear set foot controls and a solo seat configuration all hint at its uncompromising nature.

Its blueprint was created when Blacktrack designer and founder, Sacha Lakic, found a CX500 in pieces at a friend's garage - and transformed it into a sleek, modernized café racer.

The bike has been featured all over the web, and been recognized as one of the best customs of 2015. The response was phenomenal, and Lakic soon found himself pressured to produce more of the same.
