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!

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:
We’re often asked where we put all the electronics and the battery to keep the overall look for our Honda CB750 Caferacer clean and simple?

For the Hookie Co. family it meant 3 days of pure nature, motorcycles and festival feeling in Italy at Wildays. Starting in Dresden, we were heading to Parma, Italy. Indeed it is a long trip, but on the way we got to see a lot. Passing the Alps, short break at Lake Garda and heading to the Emilia Romagna region with its Apennine Mountains in the south gave us some breathtaking views.
Earlier this year we got the invitation to stay at a new motorcycle festival called „Wildays“ in Parma, Italy. A festival with races, music and camping. And not only because of the festival but also because of the beautiful country we fell in love at first sight. But together with the excitement also the stress came up. Next to all the organizational work we also had our race bike that was not ready yet. So we decided to first focus on the bike and get it done as soon as possible.

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.

After some calls we defined the concept and donor bike, which would be the best for a sleek and small caferacer.
