Personalized Eye Candy: "La Poderosa," the Adaptive CB750K

We have some of the most diverse cultural pockets on this side of the Atlantic, as you'll quickly discover if you hop over one (or three) borders and choose to visit the urban haunts of Canada's metropolises.

As you might expect from a cosmopolitan nation, the food on either side of the street is frequently out of this world. The same is true of the bespoke motorcycles built by Toronto-based bike firm Augment Motorworks.

A 1974 Honda CB750K that was the project's donor got a significant makeover. A 1975 Honda GL1000 front end had to be inserted so that the bike's inline-four engine and carburetor could be completely rebuilt.

Dual disc brakes, Progressive Suspension fork springs, and Race Tech fork emulators were added to this. all evidence that builder Nick Acosta wasn't timid in this situation.

Nick modified the front of the vehicle by adding a Dynatek Dyna S Ignition System and a Pacomotorstuff bubble seat and one-off half fairing.

The Cyclexchange 4-1 Exhaust (with Black Exhaust Wrap) was ultimately where the power was released, and it all suited the two-tone black cherry paint job by Black Widow Custom Paint.

The final product was given the name "La Poderosa," which translates to "The Mighty One" in Spanish. Nick chose this name as a tribute to the bike that Ernesto "Che" Guevara and Alberto Granado used to cross South America.
