Country Gent by Clockwork 12 June 15

Clockwork Motorcycles are based in Montreal Canada and have been in existence since 2011. They not only build custom motorcycles but sell some apparel too. They promote themselves with their mission statement below.

Born from a desire to return to a more basic, simple way of living. Where things were made with passion and dedication, made to work and last. Clockwork is about turning vintage motorcycles into simple minimalist machines made to be ridden and all about aesthetic. It's about authentic materials and true craftsmanship, about quality and attention to details. We draw our inspiration from all around us: art, architecture, fashion, design, automobiles and nature. We experience motorcycles as a great way to freedom, adventure and friendship. Our quest is to share that with you.

For this build they used a 1978 Suzuki GS550 and turned it into the Country Gent. This looks like a bike that is great for the urban streets as a fun runaround.
