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.

The Honda CB350 is a fantastic platform for café racerisation. It’s a lightweight and inexpensive bike to buy, parts are easy to come by and it’s a remarkably forgiving bike to ride at speed.
I love nothing more than coming across a bike that makes me stop and re-evaluate my own notions of what a specific style of bike should look like. This Honda CB350 built by the guys at Ellaspede is a genuinely innovative, modern interpretation of the café racer genre, and we really like it.
