Cohn Racer brings elegance and deceptively simple classic styling to modern motorcycles, while improving performance and functionality through the most advanced technology. The result is an incredible and addictive multi-sensorial experience. We blend craftsmanship, engineering, and design to customizing iconic factory motorcycles into limited edition collectable pieces. Our mission is to make what is already special into something truly unique and exclusive
Every motorcycle is made bespoke for each client. We not only take into consideration size and weight of the client, we go even further to understand the clients purpose for the bike. Suspension geometry, ergonomics, and braking performance are some of the features we modify to achieve the perfect ride. Color, graphics, and components choice change the language to suit the client’s presence. We test our motorcycles above and beyond to meet all our stress tests. Not only on individual integral pieces, but as a whole unit. Our goal is to always take Cohn Racers to even further exclusivity.
Cohn Racers is dedicated to delivering classic styling to the maximum quality available. We use high performance and technological components from leading manufactures, such as Öhlins for the front and rear suspensions, Brembo racing series for stopping power, Rizoma aftermarket parts, and Titanium bolts for lightweight and strength. Here at Cohn Racer, we also build our own parts based of 3D modeling softwares and Solidworks. This allows us to do stress analysis and select the most suitable materials. We employ similar exhaust techniques used by the leading manufacturers in the industry. Our very meticulous selections of paint, coatings and Scottish leather hides is our key to maintain excellence in value.
Long term value of our motorcycles is something we care truly about. Most production motorcycles are suspect to fast depreciation. We protect Cohn Racer’s ownership by making unique motorcycles with ethical standards and being exigent with our selling channels selection.
Cohn Racer is driven by the singular vision of Juan P-Ilzarbe (JP). His passion for engineering, design, and motorcycles go as far back to his ancestral roots. His father John Welham is an extraordinary craftsman and motorcycle rider. He introduced him to motorcycles at the age of 2. At the age of 5, JP started racing around Europe. By 13, he joined a team sponsored by Q8 Petroleum. JP and his father made projects together like a 1997 CB750. JP remembers those weekends as the best weekends of his life. At 16, JP stopped racing due to an injury and moved to South Florida from Europe to pursue a technical bachelor’s degree. JP was later hired by Apple computers corporate office. During this time, he still never forgot his passion. He was building motorcycles for himself and friends. His extreme hard work, persistence, and intelligence promised him a great career. Yet, his passion could not be pushed away any longer, he wanted to design, improve and make exclusive motorcycles. After finishing an important project at Apple, JP partnered with some of the best people in the industry and spent 13 months developing his first limited edition collectible models. JP and his team pride themselves on their customers satisfaction and ethical fortitude they evoke into their work. JP still enjoys riding at the track and on the road.
