Blacktrack Motors BT-01 Carbon cafe racer

Blacktrack Motors gives the CX500 a cafe racer treatment

Blacktrack Motors was a vision that became a reality with the production of their first bike, Blacktrack – BT-01. The BT-01 was a result of a pure streak of inspiration when their designer, Sacha Lakic found a Honda CX500 in his friends garage. Captivated by the Honda’s unique engine layout, he set about transforming the basket case into a sleek, modernized café racer.

BT-01 was designed to ensure optimal performance of the donor bike by installing new bearings, gaskets and bushes, a handmade exhaust system to a tailor-made wiring system. Furthermore, every component of the bike was remodeled and given the signature Blacktrack finish to make the cafe racer look tasteful. The BT-01 fuel tank mimics the original unit, but its tilted forward 10 degrees to change the bike’s stance and the clip-on handlebars and rear set foot controls give the BT-01 a sporty riding position.

The bike’s backbone frame design and the v-twin motor inspired Sacha to create a very unique, light and an aesthetically pleasing cafe racer with a strong character. Blacktrack Motors launched their first bike in 2015 and the rest as they say, is history. The strong success of BT-01 inspired Sacha to continue taking vintage classics and giving them a contemporary facelift.

Consequently, the Blacktrack BT-02 was born. The success and popularity of both their bikes has motivated the brand, and Blacktrack works continuously and tirelessly to deliver aesthetically pleasing raw mean machines.

Part of Blacktrack philosophy is to celebrate their uniqueness and thus the BT bikes are produced as limited edition collectible items. On the occasion of Blacktrack’s 3rd anniversary, this August (2018) they released a special anniversary edition BT-01 Carbon.

The BT-01 Carbon is produced as a single unit, with a unique varnished carbon fiber body on a Honda CX500 engine.
