This week’s Wednesday love goes to our own Patrick Ryan. Patrick is an integral part of Atlas Motorworks. We couldn’t be luckier to have his talent on our team. This was P-Ratt’s first build, commissioned by Carl Blakeslee, a partner & designer with Woolwich footwear.
Starting off with a stock 1978 cb750k, this was a frame-off build with powder coating on the wheels, frame & triple trees done by Blast from the Past. The Mac 4 into 1 header is wrapped with exhaust insulator & a cone industry muffler to finish the deep tone of the inline four cylinder. The top tree has drag bars for an aggressive stance while the stock speedo gauge was relocated to a center mount on the tree.
The subframe was bobbed & fitted with a custom seat in walnut brown vinyl. The carburetors were fitted with four Uni filters. The motor was painted with a temp matte finish while the fuel tank is three layers of black, copper & silver, laid wet & acid washed for a distressed look.
The 78′ dirt tracker is now being showcased at the Annex PDX.
