Good Luck Tour!! August 05 2016, 0 Comments

Our motorcycle builder Brady Young is building a CB550 to ride across the continental U.S. We will be documenting the build process and the trip. We are doing it on vintage brat/cafe's and we ride pretty scrappy. Mishaps and epic fails are all part of the fun as well as the epic get-away. Biltwell , Crawford Denim and Red Cloud Collective are helping us with gear to make this journey! The Seaweed & Gravel Denim line will also be launched during this epic adventure! Watch as we hit the road and visit our like minded shops along the way.
Build Process
Day One
Brady is set on doing the CB550 build in three weeks. The first thing he always does is cut the sub frame and tabs off. No messing about with this guy. Strip the excess immediately to see what the new lines will be. Keeping most of the stock frame is key though.

CB550 Custom Build by S&G builder Brady Young May 07 2013, 42 Comments

Custom build by Seaweed and Gravel in southern california built by Brady Young (previously of UGLY Motorbikes.) The inspiration for this build was spawned from a previous personal bike of Brady's, made from spare parts and a few weekends. The bike was rough, full of character, and frequently saw the dirt. Nonetheless, it caught the eye of the client that commissioned this build, but with new shoes and a classy attire. 

Our goal for this build was to create a simple, clean, minimalistic bike with an aggressive, low stance; pulling elements from both the cafe racer and brat style palettes, whilst preserving the classic lines that were buried in stock form. Once the form and stance of the bike was set, we moved forward with making it function.

The top end was rebuilt with new internals and tuned by a retired racer and mechanic of the time, making it a true one kick cold started. The client wanted a kick and electric start, so we called upon the guys at Antigravity Batteries. Their compact, powerful battery powers the new from scratch harness with an updated rec/reg combo. With this setup we were able to retain our goal of a clean and minimal design.

Our theory on the finish of our bikes is overall modesty with bold features.  With an all black bike we incorporated matte, satin, and gloss finishes to add some contrast. We here at Seaweed And Gravel feel we've produced a bike that we can be proud of, and have welcomed a new member into our family of weirdos. --Brady
