Special Alloy is a ’76 CB550 built by Amsterdam’s Tin Can Customs. Chris Dekker overhauled engine, and did a complete frame-job by Tin Can Customs. Upholstery by Silver Machine, lots of old vintage parts, remade to fit the bike. Lots of fun, one hell of a ride. This build was commissioned by Coen R, whose dad used to own the motorcycle. It was stolen, but recovered, and completely demolished in order to build something much, much more tailor made for the owner. An interesting journey.
