Restorations to like new condition are always nice to see, but sometimes it takes a creative mind to envision something a little different and in this case, the owner pulled off a great transformation. Starting with an old and tired 1970 Honda CB350 with a seized engine, he stripped it down to bare metal and began again.
A new single shock rear end was fabricated and it looks perfect. The front end is the ubiquitous GSXR, (has any other front end been used as much?) and seems to be a great choice. The engine was rebuilt with new pistons, rings, etc. and Mikuni carbs were installed, which he notes need some sorting since he moved after completing the build and the change made the jetting a bit off.
He formed the fenders on an English wheel and for a first attempt he gets high marks. The exhaust is TIG welded stainless, also by the builder. There’s a lot more, but the whole package comes together into a very nice reimagining of a fairly common, albeit over 50 year old, vintage bike. Overall, I give him an an A+. Nice work!
