This unique café racer is a hybrid of sorts, not the Priusy kind of hybrid that smells like lentils, but a hybrid in the same way the Triton is a hybrid. The man behind this bike used a 1973 CB350F frame and coupled it to a Honda CB400F engine, making all the necessary adjustments and modifications, and turning out a bike that’ll confuse even the most passionate Hondaficionado.
The Honda CB350F/CB400F has been rebuilt from the ground up, the builder chose to go with a beautiful NOS Benelli Mojave fuel tank and a professionally upholstered seat and mini-backrest The battery found a new home under the tail, the regulator/rectifier is located under the tank, that stunning engine has only 4800 miles on it and it’s fitted with new seals, gaskets, rings and a fully rebuilt head.
The fit and finish on the bike is exemplary, that paint job was done by House of Kolor, the powder coating was applied by ProKote Inc. and the striping was done by hand by the well-known and respected Bob Keeney in Indianapolis.
She’s currently sitting on eBay at $3,500 here but be warned, that Buy It Now button looks mighty inviting.
