Finally finished my '71 Honda CL350 Cafe Racer!

I had been working on it, on and off, for over a year now. Finally finished it up. I have a few ideas for some little additions/details cosmetically that I'm going to do yet. It started out as a 1971 Honda CL350 Scrambler. Enjoy!

Looks great, I expect the battery is in the solo seat? Those don't look like the stock carbs?

Thanks! The battery and starter solenoid is under the bum stop and the Trail Tech reg./rect. is under the but of the seat. All tucked in nice and clean. You are correct! Those are new Mikuni VM32 carbs.

Great job!!!!!

You are going to hate the mess that no rear fender will make on your carbs......I chopped down a rear fender from an XS 650 and put it in there.

Works great!

Thanks! Yeah, I actually have an inner fender started. Just trying to decide on how to mount it nice and clean. Wish I would have thought of that before I finished all the fab work and powdercoat! LOL!

Great job Robbie.
Love the metal-flake paint. My favourite part though is the rear-sets. Did you make them yourself? Normally that part gets passed over or cobbled together.
Very well finished bike. Now go ride it.
