This bike, a cafe racer called “Motobee” was built by Walt in 2010, it’s based on a 1983 Harley-Davidson Sportster but as with all Siegl builds, not much of the original bike remains.
The CB350 Brat is one of those bikes that lit up the moto-web when it was released last year, it had features on BikeEXIF, Cyril Huze Post and Sydney Cafe Racers and the world loved it.
