It’s a normal tuesday morning at Hookie Co. — the garage door swipes up and the room gets filled with the golden light of bright shining autumn sun. Our “Microcimbali” is already boiling and Nico brews the first Espresso of the day. The Spotify playlist mixed up some good vibes while we sit down to our daily morning meeting.
Did you know that already? The black mamba is widely perceived as the deadliest snake on the planet. Bringing the venom character into a motorcycle was our biggest challenge so far. We knew it needs to be small, slim and cautious. But the head must be clean with a toxic look.
It’s getting cold as ice, baby!
This post is all about how to surprise your girlfriend and to earn some „best-boyfriend“ credits. Therefore we prepared a little recipe that tells you how to make a fresh poison ice all by yourself. Are you ready?
As you guys seem to be interested in custom motorcycles, you probably know that some of the most famous and maybe also most crazy bike shops are located in Japan. Especially in and around Tokyo. Our mechanic Christoph recently had the chance to visit an old school buddy who moved to Yokohama last year. Here is what he came back with:
Ilya just got his black Hookie CB750 „Vultur“ and he was so happy about it, that we decided to share this special moment with you. During the whole process, he became more than a normal customer to us. So, we would love to introduce him now with some little questions:
We met Markus the first time in February 2016 – he spotted Hookie Co. in a print featuring of a Motorcycle-Mag and was instantly crazy about our first Honda CB750. Markus was looking for a small and aggressive bike, which he can easily drive on the street. As he is a very sporty and experienced driver, we thought a little Honda CB250 fits him perfectly. After some calls we defined the concept and donor bike, which would be the best for a sleek and small caferacer.
Last year we got a call from Jean Pierre, a famous TV host and one of the biggest German influencers in car tuning. When he came across the picture of our first Honda CB750, he just said “If this image of the CB750 is a real motorcycle, than I definitely want it!” The look of this picture reminded him of a 3D model. This was the beginning of the concept of “Alcedo“. JP said he never had a motorized object which was not build by himself. So obviously we accepted this challenge and started to build him a new Honda CB750 Caferacer.
Do you know those ideas that don’t let you sleep at night? With the idea of Hookie Co. it was the same. We wanted to challenge our creativity and create something that would survive the time – so in 2015 we started Hookie Co. as an official business and moved into our new garage. This was one of the most thrilling moments when we switch from 50qm to nearly 300qm – then the challenge started.
