Forget about the Arrowcar, would Oliver Queen ride this? Take a look at the Green Arrow of bikes by NCT!
It has been said that looking at greenery can be good for the eyes as the colour green is very soothing to the eyes. We are not so sure if it only applies to just plants but this lean and green beauty right here is definitely something you would want to lay your eyes on. The Honda CB750 has played an integral role in the modern custom motorcycle scene. The built of the bike has been the ideal base for custom bike garages and Austria’s National Custom Tech Motorcycles (NCT) is no stranger to the wonders of the CB750. Coming to your attention like a shot fired from an archer, NCT presents to you its version of ‘Green Arrow’.
NCT started off with a 1978 Honda CB750F and proceeded to pull the engine from it and tear down the bike to its frame. They removed most of the parts and fitted the framework with a new subframe. The team then powder-coated that and the swingarm in matte black. The main turning point of the bike is the refreshed engine, which NCT made several changes. The Japanese four-banger now comes with a quad-pod setup which features a hand-made four-into-one exhaust system which exhales the spent fumes. It has blued headers and a slash-cut, GP-style Spark muffled with a honeycombed cover.
NCT also upgraded the suspensions with the use of more modern compartments. For the rear end, NCT fitted a pair of adjustable YSS shocks wheres the front bumps featured an upside-down Showa fork slotted in one-off triples. The wheels now come with a dual-disc brake arrangement with drilled rotors.
“The hardest part of the project was probably the front-end. Getting the disc brake setup to work with the bike’s original wheels was pretty tricky. But in the end, we managed,” says NCT’s head honcho, David Widmann, as quoted from Pipeburn.
As for the cockpit, new features were added to it. This included a new set of LSL clip-ons, a CNC’d Rizoma reservoir, Brembo levers, a Tomalley Daytona throttle, and Motogadget grips, bar-end mirror, and switchgear. Not to mention, there is a keyless ignition and alarm.
Now onto the highlight of the bike: the paint scheme. The special exterior of the bike is fairly calculative. With the majority of the bike donning a black coat, the metallic forest green draws your eyes to the livery. It features red pin-striping and the turquoise Honda logos at the bottom of the tank. It also has a bespoke metal “NCT CB750F” plaque just behind the seat.
“The exhaust is just beautiful and pairs wonderfully with the new rear-end and the tank with its new colour scheme looks amazing. We’re pretty thrilled with the end result which we’d describe as a sporty café racer,” David adds.
