Honda CB350 Limited Cafe Racer

If you spend time on the Cafe Racer Do the Ton you’ll have the pleasure of many amazing custom come together. One build recently grabbed my attention was based member DucatiBoy’s CB350 ‘Limited Edition’ Racer. After a few emails and forth DB shared the story of his Racer build with me and his declaration he was no good behind the he snapped off these slick for us.

Here’s how the bike came in his own words.

It started out as a 1969 (70?) CB350. It had the upswept CL pipes on it but the number starts with I’m not sure if thats the way the are to be or if someone swapped the pipes It was sitting under a tree in a on a farm next door to my property just outside of NSW.

The farmer said I have it for free if I came and it from his property. According to him it ran before it was parked 10 years Since then my 13 year old son and I spent approx 18 months in the slowly getting it together.

The bike was stripped to the bare and 40 years worth of grime and was cleaned off along with any lugs and brackets. The rusted out rail was cut out and replaced and the motor back to the crank. A new lower was sourced from the US on ebay theold one had two broken engine We rebored the cylinders and fit 0.25mm pistons/rings and serviced the head the original valve.

A new cam chain and rollers were also before the engine cases, head and rocker box were all and painted with rattle Then a Boretech electronic dyna tech coils, rectifier/regulator and home made loom were added to get the electrics in order.

The frame was sent out for a coat of grey reminiscent of the many I have ridden over the In the front a 2.15 x 18 rim with Davidson hub and a custom 3.5 x 18 rim in the rear a Honda hub/brake custom rim and spokes. The bikes forks, clamps, discs, calipers and cylinder all came from a 848. The CB’s steering was retained but required a customised pressed into the Ducati triple clamp to allow it to

We also made a custom axle and spacers to allow the rim to fit ducati forks. The tank and are from Benjie’s Cafe and were painted by Collide-a-scope in

I’ve put a few parts bin specials when I was younger but this has the first time I’ve it properly. The bike is also the old bike I’ve rebuilt and the first time I’ve on a Japanese motor. It has been a benefit to both my son and I. For him, he is all about working in the shed, how to a spanner and the love of tinkering on

For me, I’ve had the incredible joy of working with my son towards a common and generally spending good together at a time when kids don’t want to time with their

Unlike his day job as an anaesthetist DB’s won’t be putting anyone to in a hurry. Using a smart mix of and Italian technology his limited Cafe Racer handles as good as it looks. If this is the of bike he’s teaching his son to put I think we can expect great from him in the future!
