So this Harley Rider and a guy on a CB750 walk into a bar… Just kidding folks!
All jokes aside, when it comes to producing some of the highest quality available aftermarket parts for Harley’s, Honda’s and Triumph’s Joker Machine really stands all in a light of it’s own. If you recall, we saw the team from Joker in Season 2 of CRTV along with the stunning CB750 they built. Granted, it was a bit more modern than some would prefer, however the undeniable levels of quality and attention to detail and skill could not be argued, even by the oldest and grittiest Cafe Racer guys we could find. And that means something!
Leveraging years of experience in producing parts for the aviation industry under large contracts that require miles and miles of red tape, certifications and safety measures and standards, the team at Joker has really created a new parts market where nothing existed. Being able to sketch something like a side cover for a CB750 engine or a new set of triple trees and then realize it in finished aluminum is not only of major importance to the aftermarket parts industry, but the oe parts segment too. Think about it, what happens there are not more side covers or tripple trees to be had? Someone it going to have to make them and fortunately for you, Joker is and has been putting in all the R&D to make that possible.
As you can see in the photos above of their CB750 almost every part has been CAD drawn and CNC built exactly to the Joker Machine teams specifications, in house, by themselves to depict their vision of a CB750 that is the perfect blend of old and new. If you ask us, it’s NOT too shabby and as you can see from the parts list below almost everything was made in house. Quite the feat! You can view the complete build by [CLICKING HERE.]
Needless to say, these guys are on to something and for those of you who prefer a more modern look but like the sound and feel of a true air-cooled vintage motorcycle, Joker Machine might just be your new vendor of choice.
